PAST: ART: "The Blues and Other Colors" at the DCAC from FRI, Nov 18th - SUN, Jan 8th, Free

The Blues and Other Colors at the DCAC
On view Friday, November 18th - Sunday, January 8th

"This exhibition presents works that visually express and interpret "The Blues", a musical form and genre originating in African-American communities at the end of the 19th century, and now found in jazz, rock and roll and other music genres. The word Blue also connotes the primary colour perceived from light of wavelength 440–490 nm and may represent happiness, optimism or, conversely, sadness. The artists in this show interpret the blues as a color, musical form, and emotional state.Curated by Tim Davis."
