DFW Jazz History
The city of Dallas has a rich artistic heritage that has been shaped by the artist and musicians who have called the city their home. Unfortunately, this rich heritage is largely undocumented and unheralded. The mission of the Sammons Center for the Arts is to provide a nurturing environment in which new artists can practice their craft and grow. Part of this nurturing process should be a careful examination of the work of artists who have made contributions in the past. The mature artist recognizes that knowing where we have come from is as important as where we are going.
