“the largest art museum in Mississppi”
The Mississippi Museum of Art has been a community-supported institution for more than 100 years, and was at its former location since the late 1970s. The Museum boasts a seasoned staff of museum professionals and fiscally responsible administrators who have been managing operating budgets for over 30 years. These individuals have worked to ensure that this move is the best thing for the art of Mississippi and for the people of Mississippi. The Museum’s twenty-nine affiliate museums across the state will continue to benefit from the loan of artwork and traveling exhibitions, ensuring that even those Mississippians who cannot make the trip to Jackson can enjoy our rich cultural history. MMA will use its new and larger home to expand its programs and community outreach that are already in place.
I LOVE this place! The art garden outside of the museum is amazing and the art displayed in it is incredible. I'm in love with the surf board bench. Inside they periodically have new exhibits come, it's always something new and beautiful. There's also a cafe and gift store inside. In the past, I attended workshops pertaining to art at the museum, I believe they still have these.
I thoroughly enjoyed the MMA. The artwork ranged from sculptures to canvas art and contained lots of Mississippi and U.S. history. The MMA is free and open to the public. It has a large open artsy space for large groups, quiet picnic or a lunch getaway.
