Sylvia Stagg-Giuliano was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador. In 1976 she moved to the Boston area to study at the New England School of Photography. She has since worked as an independent commercial and fine art photographer with her primary focus being composited digital photo-illustrations as well as museum-quality commissioned portraits.
In Stagg-Giuliano’s recent series, “Blood and Ink,” she journeys deep into the world of tattoos. In this series, she doesn’t just look closely at the people who adorn their bodies with tattoos, but explores the common desire they share to make some essential part of their personality, thoughts, dreams, obsessions or personal history visible to the world.
Interlude: Justice for Breonna Taylor: Duos in Dedication
Interlude is how we continue to find creative ways for artists to share their work. This is our second in a series of offerings, and we hope you take the time to listen to this beautiful and haunting musical dedication to Breonna Taylor, the innocent African-American woman killed in Louisville, Kentucky.
This piece is one of 14 duo tracks — with accompanying videos— that are part of a larger project called "Justice for Breonna Taylor: Duos in Dedication." This project is Boston-based trumpeter and educator Jason Palmer's way of responding to one of today’s most difficult issues through jazz music. Throughout the project Palmer collaborates with different musicians. In this piece, jazz pianist Kevin Harris adds his own sound to Palmer's basic solo track that appears in each of the 14 pieces.
Kevin Harris has performed at the Multicultural Arts Center and with Jason Palmer and others at the River Festival in Cambridge at the Jazz, Blues and R&B Stage which is produced and hosted by the Multicultural Arts Center for the last 12 years.
Interlude: Historia de un Amor
Saxophonist/composer Marco Pignataro created a beautiful, haunting video to accompany an improvisational exploration of "Historia de un Amor" by Panamanian composer Carlos Eleta Alamarán. This stunning work was created in duo with Jazz Pianist/composer Laszlo Gardony.
Both musicians are on faculty at Berklee College of Music and have performed at both the Multicultural Arts Center’s Jazz Club and at the Cambridge River Festival on the Jazz, Blues and World Music Stage, which the Multicultural Arts Center organizes, helps produce and hosts each year.
