The Blues Posters includes a series of five mixed media works on paper depicting various characters that've embodied the blues and struggled with oppression, poverty, notoriety, and fame. From its roots in field songs during slavery, to its influence on forming the foundation for jazz, R&B, and bluegrass, the blues have been a battle cry for the oppressed and its spirit has lived and evolved through story and song transcending region and people.
