Abstract: This video is about Prof. John Stiles' Blues Mural created by Prof. Whelan. John Stiles is celebrating the blues. The Elizabeth City State University graphic design professor is interpreting a little bit of blues history with an eye on an old artistic master, creating a 16-foot by four-foot mural that is placed in a bar in the Mississippi delta. Mr. Stiles' mural featuring a number of blues music legends, mimicking Leonardo Da Vinci’s iconic fresco, “The Last Supper,” and just like the Renaissance-era artwork, Jesus is at the center of the gathering.
