Sinatra An American Icon


Lincoln Center Library of Performing Arts

My mother loved Frank Sinatra. He was the embodiment of the music of a generation. From Big Bands to solo, duets and running his own label, he had amazing longevity. The exhibit talked not only about his life, but about his place in the world of music.He was a marker for his time crossing back and forth between the different worlds of theater, movies and music. I saw viewers carried back to their childhoods.I remembered his music wafting through my life and got a taste of those other times.
