Little Rock Newark Texas Border Blues


Blues

This deteriorated sign originally read "Drugs." But the word, in combination with the sign's peeling paint, produced a negative connotation. I took the opportunity to substitute "Blues," one of the words I had listed in my diary of specifically American words and phrases. The message now refers both to the various tones of the color blue used in the image, as well as to the one truly American from of music—and basis of all jazz—the Blues.
