H.C. Porter Book Signing and Exhibition

Thursday, December 7, 2017

We are partnering with Turnrow Gallery for a book signing and art exhibition on December 7th at 5:00pm. In December 2010, Porter set out to document Mississippi’s living blues legends through Blues @ Home: Mississippi’s Living Blues Legends, a collection of 31 paintings and coinciding oral histories collected by collaborator Lauchlin Fields. For more than two years, Porter and Fields traveled the entire state documenting the current landscape of blues in Mississippi, the birthplace of America’s most authentic music form. Porter’s paintings, combined with the first-hand accounts from the blues legends themselves, became a powerful multimedia traveling exhibition that tells Mississippi’s blues story in a unique way and brings awareness to the blues in Mississippi.
