Delta Blues Museum Fund Raising Drive Ends Tomorrow



Clarksdale, MS – On Tuesday, November 29th, the Delta Blues Museum, “located in the land where blues began,” is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global movement to celebrate year-end charitable giving.

Our goal? …to raise much-needed remaining funding to complete the design phase of our exhibit expansion, so that we can begin fabrication of what will be state-of-the-art exhibits to deepen the story we tell about this most important American art form we know as The Blues.

Exhibit design firm Solid Light from Louisville, Kentucky, has been working with Executive Director Shelley Ritter since 2010 to create appropriate and meaningful exhibit designs for the Delta Blues Museum, aiming to broaden the educational offerings of the Museum and allow visitors to experience a deeper story of the Blues and how it has shaped modern music worldwide as we know it. Completion of these designs, however, depends on funding, and we need your help.

Through the #GivingTuesday campaign, the Museum is asking for your help to raise additional funds to complete designs for this much-needed exhibit expansion. New exhibits will focus heavily on the 1940’s documentation of Blues in Coahoma County and the “discovery” of Muddy Waters, showcasing his former home from Stovall Plantation.

Help us reach of our goal of $60,000. Visit our campaign page  for all details and to make your tax-deductible contribution online.

Please consider making a donation to us so we can make our expansion vision a reality for generations to come.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, and be sure to visit our campaign to learn more about how your donation will make a difference.

Help us keep the beat!
