Thoughts on swing dancing and Lindy Hop, one word at a time…

Vintage Jazz Art

I was reading this post on yehoodi and was reminded of Mike Thibault’s website, Vintage Jazz Art. It features for sale prints of artists’ work like Rube Goldberg, Miguel Covarrubias, and Charles Peterson related to dance.  To quote his website,

“For all the Jazz Fans, Vernacular Jazz Dancers, and Harlem Renaissance Aficionados out there, I have begun to acquire the rights to Jazz Age artwork with the intention of reproducing them as posters and fine art prints. Research and tracking down the original works is a large part of the process.  I have also done a lot of work in finding the best printing methods so that the reproductions of these long forgotten works will have the finest possible colors and detail.”

An additional plus to purchasing any of these pieces of art (besides the +1 to awesome your house gets) is,

“Additionally, a portion of every purchase benefits The Lindy Hopper’s Fund of America, a nonprofit organization that helps the elder generation of Lindy Hoppers still alive today who danced at the Savoy Ballroom, on stage, and on film.”

So if you are looking for some amazing dance related art to decorate your home or local swing dance venue with and like helping the elder generation of Lindy Hoppers as well, http://www.vintagejazzart.com/ is your destination.
