In Celebration of its Twenty-Fifth Year
Clarksdale, Mississippi, January 21, 2004:
Portraits of the Blues: the Fine Art Posters of Danny Garrett opened at the Delta Blues Museum on January 30, 2004. At 4:00 pm, the artist gave a presentation on his work, along with a one-time showing of the original drawing boards, many autographed by the portraits' subjects including Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
A reception was held, honoring the Delta Blues Museum on it's 25th Anniversary, with a proclamation by The Honorable Henry Espy, Mayor of Clarksdale and music by Pat Thomas and Jimbo Mathus.
The Blues cannot be traced to any one source, but a road taken by many of its legends makes its way through Clarksdale, Mississippi, where Highway 49 meets Highway 61: the Crossroads.
