From the poster
“The musical portraits lining our stair and balcony rails are the work of legendary cartoonist Robert Crumb. they were originally produced as parts of three sets of trading cards issued by Yazoo Records in the 1980s: Heroes of the Blues, Early Jazz Greats, and Pioneers of Country Music.
“Images were selected to include representatives from all three genres, male and female artists, soloists as well as ensembles, famous and obscure performers, and as many different musical instruments as possible.”

“This project was funded through a generous contribution from Ken Pelletier and Amanda Lao.”
