African American migrants brought the blues to Chicago, using music to feel at home in unfamiliar, often inhospitable surroundings. Here, the sound was electrified and amplified, recorded and shared around the world. Discover the blues of 1960s Chicago and its important cultural legacy through gallery exploration; analysis and discussion of the work of photographer Raeburn Flerlage; and of course, the music itself. This seminar culminates with a trolley tour of historic blues locations on May 5.
Cost: Onsite sessions $25 each; trolley tour $40. Register for all three for $80.
