HMRC Pops Up! Texas Jazz Archive 

In 1987 the Jazz Heritage Society of Texas partnered with the Houston Metropolitan Research Center to document the under-represented jazz scene in Houston and the Gulf Coast of Texas by developing the Texas Jazz Archive collection.  The archive was only active for a few years but in that time the initiative collected material from 22 artists.  This HMRC Pop-Up exhibit will feature ephemera, photographs, and oral history clips of the musicians who were inducted. 

Parking is available under the Central Library building, with entry on Lamar Street.  For questions, please contact HMRC at TXR.Reference@houstontx.gov or 832-393-1662.
