musings of a subway performer and lifelong troubadour

Jim Costanzo revolutionary @NewMuseum

Added on by Cathy Grier.

I met Jim at the opening of Pawel Athamer's exhibition at the New Museum. Street musicians have been invited to perform throughout the exhibition (ongoing until April 20th) Jim was invited by the artist to perform during the opening of the part of the exhibition entitled Draftsmen's Congress.  With Jim's baritone trumpet and socially conscious heart, he shared his philosophy on life and the world.

What Inspires Jim? "The common good from the commonwealth, all people created equal, all people entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
