Admission Purchase general admission

Experience Frederick J. Brown’s groundbreaking series The Actress: A Drawing in Five Parts surrounded by jazz music spun live by Bronx-based DJ Sunny Cheeba, founder of Uptown Vinyl Supreme. This immersive experience in the galleries is inspired by Brown’s practice of listening to music in his studio as he worked, as well as his collaborations with jazz musicians like Ornette Coleman and Anthony Braxton during the New York Art Renaissance of the 1970s and 1980s.

Sunny Cheeba is a multidimensional creative weaving her passions of djing, farming, and plant alchemy into her life’s work. As a self taught DJ setting the vibes since 2015, she’s spun 100+ events throughout New York City. From playing at parks, markets, galleries, museums, and even SummerStage, Sunny prides herself in being a DJ for the PEOPLE.

This program is part of #HRMWomensHistoryMonth.
