Gallery Exhibition: Asbury Park’s Springwood Avenue Harmony - Celebrating The West Side’s Unique Musical Legacy 

Pollak Gallery - 9 AM

Long before Asbury Park became known for rock music, the city’s African American community rocked on Springwood Avenue. Between 1910 and 1970, the city’s West Side pioneered the sounds of jazz, gospel and rhythm & blues. This exhibit explores, chronicles and highlights Asbury Park’s black music scene from Count Basie to Billy Brown, through an impressive collection of rare photos and memorabilia. Opening Reception: February 4, from 6-8 pm

Born Daphne Scholonski, Dylan was locked up in a mental hospital at age 15 for being an "inappropriate female." Now a distinguished public speaker, author of award winning memoir The Last Time I Wore a Dress and artist, Dylan will be exhibiting his own work - which portrays the anguish of his hospital years and his ultimate triumph - as well as examples of artwork by participants in his “lead with your heart” workshop.
