Cover | Kyra Baldwin
Untitled (oil pastel). Berkeley High student Kyra Baldwin’s “Untitled” oil pastel is the winner of The Monthly’s Seventh Annual Student Cover Contest. Baldwin’s piece captures the seeming detachment of a boy in her freshman art class. Monthly publisher Karen Klaber will present awards to the three top and honorable-mention winners on Sunday, October 7, 6 p.m. at Blick Art Materials, 811 University Ave. in Berkeley. For more information, contact Blick general manager Sarah Gaiero at (510) 486-2600. Click here for more about the cover artist and about the Student Cover Contest.

FEATURE | Muscarella Makes Her Mark
Susan Muscarella launched the Jazzschool just 10 years ago, building it into an East Bay institution. A groundbreaking musician herself, Muscarella has pioneered music education and brought jazz greats to the school as teachers. But in this 10th year, after Yoshi’s released a CD that failed to include African-American jazz artists, Muscarella found herself center-stage in a jazz scene full of controversies over race.
