C3 Community Art Series

Each year, the Museum hosts a unique and original project as part of our ongoing series, C3: Creativity. Conversation. Community. Local or visiting artists lead a participatory art installation consisting of workshops throughout the Winter and Spring, culminating in a public installation in The Art Garden at the Mississippi Museum of Art during Spring Break. The goal of this series, inaugurated in 2012, is to bring together the diverse members and citizens of the community for the purpose of fueling an artwork that is representative of this place and of Mississippi as a whole. For more information about C3, contact Carol Peaster at djohnson@msmuseumart.org.


As we begin to implement our fifth year of C3, the Mississippi Museum of Art is looking for input from an artist or group of artists who will creatively contemplate, initiate and execute a three-month art engagement piece to which the “community” of Jackson and the state of Mississippi will strongly contribute to the art process, the project’s identity, and perhaps even its installation. For project details, click here.

Previous C3 projects include:

2012: Cocoon Jackson
2013: The Future is on the Table #4
2014: Core Sample
2015: Looking Forward to Happiness
