Though it is unknown if he traveled to Mississippi, the iconic work of Jean-Michel Basquiat often explored themes of the American South. This program will focus on Basquiat's Natchez and will showcase the wide-range of music—from Bach to the Blues—that influenced him. Please note: Natchez will only be on view during the month of December.
Unburied Treasures is a monthly series, occurring every second Tuesday of the month, that brings the humanities to life through art, literature, and music. This one-hour program features an object from the Museum's permanent collection, and during the run of the Museum's bicentennial exhibition, "Picturing Mississippi, 1817-2017: Land of Plenty, Pain, and Promise," will also include works that are in the exhibition but not in the permanent collection.
This event is free and open to the public.
