Blues Exhibition

Date: May 12, 2018 to September 8, 2018,
Venue: The Kansas African American Museum - 601 N. Water, Wichita

The Event:

Around the turn of the century, African Americans from the South created one of the most influential genres of popular music in America’s history: the blues. With roots in African musical traditions, work songs, spirituals and folk music, the blues became the inspiration for other genres: jazz, rock and roll, gospel, and popular music. Although traditional blues no longer commands the audience it once did, it has a rich and powerful history of soulful expression.

This exhibition celebrates the blues, its history and its legacy with photographs and interactive displays.
