With a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the LSU Museum of Art was able to organize and travel the exhibition The Visual Blues. A fully illustrated catalogue was produced to accompany the exhibition. With the help of the National Endowment for the Arts, the LSU Museum of Art was able to link connections between the influences of music, dance, travel, and social clubs to what happened at the other end of paintbrushes held by the artists of the Harlem Renaissance.
