We all know Miles Davis to be the baddest trumpeter, but did you know that he was an artist too? He sketched in between shows in his spare time. The family of Miles Davis and Chicago-native fine artist Francine Turk are releasing a new book, Bad Ass. Miles was known to say I ain’t Black, I am golden. Turk got her big break when her charcoal nude pieces featured in the 2006 Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn-helmed filmThe Break Up. In demand from avid collectors and interior designers alike, Turk’s work was most recently seen by the masses on the hit show Empire. Opening Night for Next Level Bad Ass featuring the original sketchbooks of Sir Miles Davis is September 21 at 2110 S. Wabash from 7 to 10 p.m.
