MoMAís Jazz Interlude Gala Honored Sherry B. Bronfman, Vernon Jordan,
Julie Mehretu, and the Ford Foundation on April 8
The Museum of Modern Artís 2015 Jazz Interlude, a benefit gala dinner and live music performance, honored Sherry B. Bronfman, Vernon Jordan, Julie Mehretu, and the Ford Foundation on April 8. This yearís honorees share a commitment to social justice, diversity, arts, and education. 
The benefit included a cocktail reception in the Museum, followed by a seated dinner and live performances by Ron Carter, one of the most recorded jazz musicians in history, and Helen Sung, an award winning classical pianist. The eveningís music is produced by George Wein.
The 2015 Jazz Interlude event chairs were Eric J. Barkley, Eboni S. Gates, and Marquita Pool-Eckert. Honorary co-chairs were Agnes Gund and David Rockefeller, Jr. Past honorees of the benefit have included Spike Lee, Mera and Donald Rubell, Elizabeth Catlett, Roland and Lois Betts, Agnes Gund, David Rockefeller Jr., George Wein, Dorothy Cullman, and Camille Cosby.
The event is organized by The Friends of Education, a MoMA affiliate group dedicated to raising public awareness of African American artists, supporting the Museumís education initiatives, and encouraging the participation of African Americans at MoMA. Proceeds from Jazz Interlude will benefit the exhibition One-Way Ticket: Jacob Lawrenceís Migration Series and Other Visions of the Great Movement North and The Friends of Education Fund, which assists the Museum in acquiring important works by African American artists, to increase its outreach to the African American community, and to support the Museumís extensive educational programming.
