Catch It: Lincoln Center

A week ago Thursday, at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, I was among hundreds of visitors at Sinatra: An American Icon, an exhibition curated by the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles.

According to Robert Santelli, the Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum, “This year we celebrate the Frank Sinatra Centennial. It examines one hundred years of Sinatra’s legacy. Never-before-seen photos, family mementos, rare correspondence, personal items, artwork, and, of course, music make up the exhibit. Most of the pieces come directly from the Sinatra family and have never been on public display before.”

The exhibit, which launched in March, ended on September 4th, but Lincoln Center hasn’t lost the Sinatra flavor. Strolling along, I could feel Sinatra’s soulful and smooth lyrical voice, as he greeted his audiences in a plaid Fedora hat, holding a crystal glass of Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select.
