Chicago artist Lewis Achenbach is a fixture in Chicago's jazz rooms and festivals, where he works to do the impossible: capture the elusive artform of jazz in visual form. Chronicling in thoroughly personal terms the city's ever-expanding jazz landscape, Achenbach’s images are vibrant with color, punctuated with long lines, and surging with energy. The Sonic Storyshowcases some of Achenbach’s extensive portfolio of jazz paintings and portraits, and includes two live sketching sessions by the artist during Logan Center’s Third Tuesday jazz performances in January and March.
