Art Shows In Chicago - Now through May 10

“The Mississippi Delta Blues Project.”
Opening Friday, May 2, 6:00 – 9:00 PM
August House Studios - 2113 W. Roscoe

The Mississippi Delta Blues Project is a photographic exhibition of the faces, places, talent and tragedy that define a unique American music genre – the blues.
Artist Lou Bopp spent more than three years on the Delta Blues Trail capturing a generation of musicians who played a critical role in the development of the Blues and influenced performers worldwide.
Portraits of musicians, some still performing, in juke joints and neighborhood saloons; the exhibition records the end of an era and pays tribute to the legends, locations and culture of the Mississippi Delta Blues.
