The Birthplace of the Blues, a collaborative documentary exhibition by artists Armon Means and T. Easton Selby and researcher Dr. John Straitthat, examines the forgotten aspects of the Mississippi Delta as navigated through the Blues. Through photographs, writings, and other media, we examine the origins of the sound, the locations that have inspired generations of people, and the identity of an iconic landscape.
