The Jersey Art Exchange youth collaborated with Riverview Jazz, a local jazz organization in Jersey City, that showcases the diverse cultures and artists of jersey and brings jazz awareness to the public. Photography members of JAX learned to take creative photographs of jazz performances. They learned how to interpret jazz music through a visual medium. They learned about Jazz and Jazz culture. They asked themselves: How do visual artists interpret music? What does jazz mean to us? What happens when sounds and vision come together through creativity?
JAX youth learned to shoot on location and used creative photography techniques to enhance their photos. They learned to edit photographs in photoshop using creative editing tools. And finally they showcased their photos at a final public exhibition featuring jazz musicians.
