The Piedmont Blues Preservation Society also announces its anticipation of the POP! Downtown Greensboro series of temporary Art installations to appear in un-occupied storefront windows from mid-March to the end of May 2014.  Downtown Greensboro, Inc., in collaboration with Open Art Society (OAS) will feature up to 10 artists from around the region responding to the theme “BLUES.”

The blues theme came to be as OAS recognized that iconic musicians developed the Piedmont Blues style right in our “backyard”, a sound that took hold in the south and influenced music around the world. The project will also celebrate the Carolina Blues Festival produced by Piedmont Blues Preservation Society held May 17, 2014.
