Creative Louisiana, a monthly morning meetup for creatives, will hold its May event on Friday, May 31, at the Glassell Gallery, located at 100 Lafayette St, Baton Rouge, LA 70801.
We'll host a blues-inspired morning. Surrounded by the Glassell Gallery exhibit, "Raining in My Heart: Baton Rouge Blues Project," we'll listen to Maxine Crump, one of the founding members of the Baton Rouge Blues Foundation.
She'll tell the story of how Baton Rouge birthed the blues, and the story of the artists and audiences who made the blues a soulful part of our history. Baton Rouge's blues heritage is rich, and this month we'll be celebrating it in style.
The event gets started at 8:30 for coffee and mingling, and the lecture portion of the event starts at 9:00am. Everyone is off to work by 10:00 am and it's free!
