Unburied Treasures | Williams Aiken Walker's "A Cotton Plantation on the Mississippi"

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

5:30-6:30 PM

Trustmark Grand Hall

William Aiken Walker's genre paintings after the Civil War presented a calm, orderly view of life in the South. This program will focus on Walker's A Cotton Plantation on the Mississippi, considering and critiquing visualizations of cotton through images such as Walker's as well as through the words of writers.

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.
