Blues Hall of Fame

PROJECT: “The Blues Foundation raised nearly $3 million, two-thirds of which came from fan donations, to renovate 11,524 square feet in a building across from the National Civil Rights Museum in the South Main Historic Arts District. The Hall of Fame is expected to draw 20,000 to 30,000 visitors in its first year, and is a short drive from other music destinations such as Graceland, Stax Records, and Sun Studio. The two-story space houses an interactive database of artists’ biographies, photos, videos, songs, and album covers, as well as clothing, paintings, bronze busts, records, and magazines.”
