Marcus Glenn‘s artwork for the Oct. 16-19 Amelia Island Jazz Festival puts you in the mood for the great music and good times the annual event has on deck for attendees. True to form, Marcus captures the essence of music in his work. It takes only a quick glance at the vibrant piece to get into that jazz groove.
The festival provides a rich, diverse cultural offering to Florida’s Amelia Island area by exposing thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds to the sounds, excitement and vitality of great jazz.
The Festival presents world-class jazz in many styles, including swing, bebop, Dixieland, big band, Latin, and contemporary. During the week-long festival, held in October each year, music is performed by jazz greats as well as fresh, up-and-coming young talent. Performances are staged in several venues around Amelia Island including the OMNI Hotels & Resorts Amelia Island Plantation. The Amelia Island Jazz Festival helps preserve the American art form Jazz by increasing the exposure and awareness of the music genre to the general public.
Marcus created the official art for this year’s festival poster, the original of which was auctioned at an April fundraising event in support of the festival. Tim Yanke also donated two original pieces that he created specifically for the fundraiser with percussion cymbals as a base.
