About

**EXTENDED THROUGH AUG. 9, 2020 ** This exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service makes its only Florida appearance in 2020 with a stop at the Museum of Arts & Sciences in Daytona Beach. In collaboration with the Jerry Dantzic Archives, it offers a vivid and intimate photographic portrait of one of the 20th century's most iconic musical figures: the consummate jazz and blues singer Billie Holiday (1915-1959). Rarely seen photographs capture Holiday's life just two years before she died at the age of 44.
