Each year, the Museum hosts a unique and original project as part of our ongoing series, C3: Creativity. Conversation. Community. Every Spring, local or visiting artists lead a participatory art installation in The Art Garden at the Mississippi Museum of Art. 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.

Previous C3 project include:

2012: Cocoon Jackson

2013: The Future is on the Table #4

2014: Core Sample
