Playing the Changes is a traveling exhibition developed by Oberlin College and the Milton J. Hinton Photographic Collection. It combines original photographs by Hinton with insightful materials drawn from the Milton J. and Mona C. Hinton Collection in the Oberlin Conservatory Library's special collections. This exhibition provides an unrivaled perspective on the life and legacy of one of the most accomplished bass players of the twentieth century. Hinton worked with performers across the spectrum of styles, including Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, Barbra Streisand, and Paul McCartney.

The selected artwork has been curated by Oberlin Conservatory Special Collections Librarian and Curator Jeremy Smith. This also marks a first time collaboration between Beck Center’s Music Education Department, led by Associate Director Matt Charboneau, and Beck Center’s Visual Arts Education Department, led by Associate Director Darrelle Centuori.
