AMPLIFIED: chicago blues 

 

About the Exhibition

 

 

Southern black migrants brought the blues to Chicago, where the music helped them forge connections and transform an unfamiliar, often inhospitable city into a new home. The music was also transformed—electrified and amplified to compete with urban noise. The photography of Raeburn Flerlage captures the streets, clubs, homes, and studios where a community of musicians defined the Chicago blues sound.  Immerse yourself in the Chicago scene of the 1960s through Flerlage’s images, and experience the blues by playing guitar, designing an album cover, writing lyrics, and singing karaoke to Blues Classics "Got My Mojo Working" Muddy Waters, "Wang Dang Doodle" - KoKo Taylor, and "Sweet Home Chicago" - Wayne Baker Brooks
