A Cast of Blues

When: July 2-Dec. 9 2016

The National Blues Museum is pleased to announce its next traveling exhibition, “A Cast of Blues,” created by artist Sharon McConnell-Dickerson. The exhibit is composed of the life-cast masks of 40 blues musicians, including Big George Brock, David “Honeyboy” Edwards, and Ruth Brown. The exhibit also includes a bronze sculpture of the hands of blues artist Johnny Winter. Life-casting is a sculpting process where a cast is created by placing molding materials on a live model. Viewing the exhibit is included in the cost of admission.
