Affiliate Museums

The mission of the Mississippi Museum of Art Affiliate Network, which consists of approximately 30 not-for-profit organizations in Mississippi, is to increase the engagement of the state’s many communities in the visual arts by utilizing the Museum’s most significant resource—artworks from the Mississippi Museum of Art’s Permanent Collection. The Affiliate Network Program is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
