Current Traveling Exhibit:

 

  • “See That My Grave is Kept Clean”
    A personal collection of etchings from gravestones of Blues artist.
    John Wegrzyn, Curator
  • February 17th – May 19th 2018

The exhibit entitled “ See That My Grave Is Kept Clean”  is taken from a song by Blind Lemon Jefferson and includes rubbings of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Memphis Minnie, Professor Longhair and dozens more.

John Wegrzyn has traveled the United States visiting grave sites of famous blues musicians for the past 20 years. About 10 years ago he created gravestone rubbings on album record sleeves from these sites. This process transforms the images of the gravestone onto paper making a unique artful homage to each musician.
