The Gerry Mulligan Collection at the Library of Congress
On April 6, 1999, an exhibition dedicated to the late jazz composer and performer Gerry Mulligan was installed in the foyer of the Performing Arts Reading Room of the Library of Congress (pictured above). The exhibition features Mulligan's gold-plated baritone saxophone and is drawn from the Gerry Mulligan Collection. Consisting of photographs, music manuscripts, musical scores, record album covers, and a series of wood-block prints in various hues by artist Antonio Frasconi, the exhibition documents Mulligan's career of nearly half a century.
