Phillip Rollins aka DJ Young Venom | Mapping a Modern MS

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Phillip Rollins describes Offbeat as an alternative arts store, but it has been described as a culture store. A venue, shop, and gallery for minority artists, Offbeat has become a hub of artistic activity in the Jackson area.

“It’s exactly what I wanted it to be. It’s still the beginning that it hasn’t gotten to where there are ten people coming in a day just hanging out, but it’s people that are building a community and realizing ‘I can have this here.’”-Phillip Rollins

This interview is part of the Museum’s Mapping a Modern Mississippi Initiative.
