OCCC’s Inasmuch Gallery is featuring an art exhibit called “Tailored Jackets” — an appreciation of music legends across genres — until Friday, Oct. 31, said Cultural Programs Assistant Scott Tigert.

A private collector donated autographed record jackets from bands ranging from Fleetwood Mac to electronic house musicians, Tigert said.

“It’s 55 autographed record jackets that have been framed — ergo, ‘Tailored Jackets’,” Tigert said. “It’s a conglomeration of artists — all the different visual artists who worked on all the different albums,” he said.

“It’s about 30 to 40 years [of music genres] — from folk all the way to techno and house.” For the most part, Tigert said, most of the original band members signed the record jackets on display.

The Inasmuch Gallery is open from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is located in the Visual Performing Arts Center Theater.
