Mississippi Museum of Art, Inc. (Jackson, MS 39215-1330)
Elizabeth Abston (Project Director: January 2018 to present)
Mississippi Stories: Visions of a Changing South

Reinstallation of a permanent exhibition and creation of accompanying public programming and publications with art and stories of Mississippi.

The Mississippi Museum of Art respectfully requests an Exhibitions Implementation grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities through its Public Humanities Projects grant program for the re-installation of its award-winning permanent exhibition, The Mississippi Story. In this next iteration of the permanent collection, however, the overall framework of the galleries will be known as Mississippi Stories: Visions of a Changing South. These re-imagined spaces will explore themes related to history, migration, memory, and place using art pulled from the permanent collection as well as strategic long-term loans that amplify and deepen the significance of the spaces. By incorporating a variety of voices and stories that relate to lived experiences of and around Mississippi in the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, this exhibition will delve into the identity of the state and its place in the contemporary world.
