Museum After Hours – Man and Machine

Thursday, June 15, 2017

5:30 PM - until

Witness the public debut of artist Rory Roark, a self-taught artist who unlocked his creative expression through a fusion of handmade craftsmanship and digital design. His sculptures – constructed primarily from rolled tubes of humble paper board – explore the relationship between technological precision and human imperfection. Additional Third Thursday programming includes pop up ‘sipp Sourced dining with Chef Nick Wallace, an outdoor Screen on the Green movie, live music, and more.

Every third Thursday we host Museum After Hours, when we open the doors after hours to partner with and embrace Mississippi's creative community. These family-friendly events feature one-night pop up exhibitions, pop up dining experiences, and combinations of live music, outdoor movies, games, and more. Each month has a new theme and a new story. The Museum Store and exhibition galleries remain open until 8 PM for shopping and exploring. Sponsored by Bradley, HORNE LLP, Hertz Investment Group and Capital City Beverages. Cost: Free to the public
