H.C. Porter's Blues @ Home: Mississippi’s Living Blues Legends 

When: April 2-June 1 2016
www.nationalbluesmuseum.org/exhibits/traveling-exhbits
Visual artist H.C. Porter created 31 paintings of Mississippi-based blues artists and has paired them with oral histories from each subject. The exhibition includes images of world-famous performers, including the late David “Honeyboy” Edwards, the late B.B. King, and Bobby Rush. In addition to shooting each portrait, Porter was able to record the artists speaking about their lives and their talents. Segments of the interviews can be heard through a handheld audio wand that allows visitors to listen at their own pace as they view a portrait.
