154. Playing the Blues, vinyl wrap by Amanda Wirig

Artist Statement by Amanda Wirig of Mankato - "My piece, entitled "Playing the Blues," was influenced by the thriving music scene in Mankato's downtown area. This particular box is in close proximity to many of the bars and restaurants that feature live music several nights a week, so I chose to depict a group of musicians performing in one of these venues. Mankato is also home to several recording studios, a college radio station, and a record store, which are represented by the vinyl record on the top of the box."
