The Birthplace of the Blues

March 28 through May 7, 2022

Ringel Gallery, Stewart Center

The Birthplace of the Blues, a collaborative documentary exhibition by artists Armon Means and T. Easton Selby and researcher Dr. John Strait, 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.
