Bruce Davenport Jr's Artworks in September Harper's

August 23, 2011

Bruce Davenport Jr's artworks celebrating New Orleans high school marching bands are featured in three pages of the September issue of Harper's Magazine. One piece on the first page is printed upside-down. It's a mistake, but it could be seen as a distress signal for band programs that the school system has been weakening and destroying with budget cuts for the last couple of decades.
