We are the Music Makers: Preserving the Soul of America’s Music, organized by Music Maker Relief Foundation educates and engages viewers in the cultural history of traditional Southern music. The exhibit includes 30 panels – featuring 28 photos and stories from Music Maker musicians. A supplemental website provides audio and video components for each panel. The exhibit highlights how poverty, geography, and age have limited the exposure of these artists, questioning the widespread idea that these musical traditions they perform have “died out.”
