Gallery Talk | “Imagining a Place: The Role of Literature in Visualizations of Mississippi”

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

11:30 AM to 12:00 PM

Talk begins in Selby and Richard McRae Lobby

Mississippi is a place that conjures up many images, both real and imagined. Visual artists have undoubtedly played a critical role in images about the state, but so, too, have writers such as Mark Twain, William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, and Richard Wright. Join Betsy Bradley, Director of the Mississippi Museum of Art, as she explores the literature about Mississippi in relation to its visual history.

Gallery talks offer visitors the chance to engage with a single work, or pairing of works, for a 30-minute talk led by Museum curators and educators, as well as local artists and scholars.
