Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art Introduces New Exhibition Showcasing African American Performance History From the 1920s through the 1970s
Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art recently debuted its newest exhibition Caldonia: Concert and Film Posters from The Ralph DeLuca Collection.
Showcasing icons of American music, Caldonia features a collection of 44 vintage posters advertising performances and films featuring African American musicians and actors from the 1920s into the 1970s.
Named and curated by Serubiri Moses, Caldonia offers a window into an era of Black performance history that is slowly disappearing from public memory.
This selection of promotional announcements highlights performers as wide-ranging as Otis Redding, Jackie “Moms” Maybley, Thelonius Monk and Aretha Franklin. Many of the posters exhibited are themselves rare, but their true value comes from their historical context.
Taken together, they bring to life the networks of Black artists and Black-owned performing arts venues—known as the Chitlin’ Circuit—that, while not memorialized in history books, launched the careers of now-household names who shaped American music history.
