Martha Whitney Butler | Mapping a Modern Mississippi

Thursday, October 13, 2016

President of The Arts Hancock County, President/Founder of the Raw Oyster Marching Club, and owner of The French Potager, Martha Whitney Butler is a major asset to the city of Bay St. Louis.

“I think claiming the fact that you’re an artist is a hard thing to do and a hard thing to get your head around. But that’s something that I found that happened to me, and that’s kind of what I’ve made my goal here in Bay St. Louis to do, is to push that person over the line to make them say ‘I am an artist,’ and be confident in it. To witness this community where everyone is an artist… One of those places where you can find yourself, and it leads to incredible things.”- Martha Whitney
