I want us to write about the Monterey Blues Fest the same way we will about the hottest acts at this year’s ESSENCE Music Festival. I want this blog to help us realize that it does not take an art degree or a pedigree of blue-blood to recognize, appreciate and converse about a painting in a gallery.
