I enjoyed the quilting exhibit that was here when I visited as well as Jeffrey Gibson exhibit of Everlast Punching bags that were decorated with beading and jingles was interesting. Check the exhibition list and see what you might enjoy.

The visit took about ten minutes as all but one of the galleries were closed. It looked like work was being done on the other galleries so maybe they will have something soon??

We really enjoyed the Picturing Mississippi art gallery. It was beautiful in every way. It was so well placed, every piece. I would love to keep going back each time the gallery is changed. It is always a pleasure.

This museum is so underutilized because the public does not realize what a jewel this community has in its mists. There are always top notch exhibits
