Gene Dobbs Bradford, executive director for Jazz St. Louis, stands in the Public Media Commons in Grand Center as the PNC Arts Alive grants are about to be awarded. He’s enjoying a chilly, sun-dappled morning and the chance to discuss the Jazz St. Louis programing related to jazz and baseball funded by this grant.  

“This is our attempt to help people in the community draw connections to jazz in other parts of their lives,” said Dobbs Bradford.

Jazz St. Louis is one of 11 local arts organizations that each received upwards of $20,000.

The International Photography Hall of Fame is moving to St. Louis.

The organization will bring with it thousands of historical cameras and images.

Those include iconic photographs like Alfred Eisenstaedt’s “V-J Day in Times Square," Ansel Adams’ “Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico,” and Dorothea Lange's "Migrant Mother" - all of which you can see above.

John Nagel is the board president of the International Photography Hall of Fame and a photographic artist who lives in Hermann, Mo.

St. Louis Public Radio’s Maria Altman spoke with Nagel about the Hall of Fame’s history and the move.
