Whitney Signs:
Blues for Smoke

SAT, Mar 2, 2013
3 pm

Whitney Signs is a free American Sign Language gallery tour with voice interpretation. Join us this month for a tour of Blues for Smoke at 3 pm, with a free post-tour reception from 4–5 pm. Please note that the time for this program has changed; the free reception will occur after the gallery tour. The normal schedule for Whitney Signs and ASL Tours will resume on March 22.


Blues for Smoke brings into focus a wide range of contemporary art, music, literature, and film through the lens of the blues. Featuring the work of visual artists such as David Hammons, Zoe Leonard, and Jean-Michel Basquiat alongside the music of jazz, blues, and hip-hop legends, the exhibition considers how the blues might help us understand themes of place, performance, and identity in recent art.
