House of Blues - The Cambridge Room General Info
House of Blues venues are home to the largest permanently displayed collection of Outsider and American Folk Art, often referred to as Southern Vernacular Art. More than 150 untrained, self-taught and mostly African-American artists are represented in this living museum that features artwork that is as diverse as the music on the House of Blues stages. Notable artists such as Mose T., Jimmy Lee Sudduth, Leroy Almon, Roy Ferdinand, Howard Finster, Richard Burnside, Ruth Mae McCrane, Jon Bok and Archie Byron, to name just a few, created emotional, raw, primitive and powerful pieces which serve as a Visual Blues, and is exhibited on the walls of all its restaurants and music halls. Art and music portraying 20th century black Americans is a powerful representation of the cultural journey toward healing the traumas of slavery and systemic racism. In the presence of darkness and division, artistic expression brings forth the light of creation and community.
