Mississippi: Museum on Wheels
The Mississippi Arts Commission is sponsoring Museum on Wheels, a traveling exhibit and lesson in visual art. Funded by the Wallace Foundation, the goal of the project is to bring communities together through the inspirational power of visual art and to serve as an
educational tool for local residents and students. By providing instruction in understanding and appreciating visual art, Mississippians of all ages can enrich their future visual art experiences and build a community that values the arts in daily life. The exhibit provides introductory definitions alongside classical and contemporary replicas of artworks by European, American and Mississippi artists. Accompanying the replicas are artists’ biographies and lessons in the elements of visual art. For the past year this exhibit has been visiting libraries across Mississippi. The exhibit is currently in northern Mississippi and will visit 10 public libraries across that region until April 2010. In the fall of 2010 the exhibit will begin visiting schools across the state.
