We are pleased to announce that The Jazz Gallery has been featured in two videos from the Rockefeller Brothers FundArtists in Motion and A Pivotal Role: Arts in New York City!

Founded in 1940, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund operates on a mission to advance “social change that contributes to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world.” The organization supports work in the areas of “Democratic Practice,” “Peacebuilding,” and “Sustainable Development,” and is active in three regions of the world: New York City, Western Balkans, and Southern China. The Jazz Gallery is supported by the Charles E. Culpeper Arts & Culture Grants, which are a part of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund’s New York City Pivotal Places initiative. The Culpeper grants “support the creative process, build the capacity of small and mid-size arts and cultural institutions, and support the pursuit of the creative life.”

The videos spotlight The Gallery and three other beneficiaries of Rockefeller Brothers Fund support – Creative Time, Gallim Dance, and the Spanish Theatre Repertory Company – all of whom are enabled by Culpeper Arts & Culture Grants.

Watch both videos, which feature the vocalist Claudia Acuña and The Jazz Gallery’s Executive Director Debbie Steinglass, here.
