For Black History Month, A Celebration of the Blues by New York-based illustrator Ron Bucalo presents a collection of black line illustrated portraits depicting great legends of the American blues, from Muddy Waters and B. B. King to Bonny Raitt and Howlin' Wolf. Soulful, sultry, and redolent of the earthy mix of raw talent, hardship, and enduring creativity inspiring this iconic genre, the collection is part of a larger series of portraits representing Volume 2 of American Music Pioneers. 

The afternoon includes a live performance of the Blues for your musical entertainment.
