The sculpture will be added to the ceiling which features “the Blues Gods” – a great honor and House of Blues tradition with many music legends adorning the room. The pieces, which are sculpted in clay, all depict a master of the blues or a blues-inspired artist, honoring the history of blues music and its influence across all music.
