Museum After Hours | "This Land is My Land"

Thursday, April 19, 2018

5:30 PM-until

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 collaborations feature one-night pop-up exhibits and 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, La Brioche at the Museum, and the galleries stay open until 8 PM.

This month, we explore the complexities of Southern farmland through art, conversation, food, and film.

5:30 PM-until: Pop-up exhibit of Mississippi landscapes by photographer Christina McField, African-American cowboys of the Delta by photographer Rory Doyle, and the winners of the Envision Mississippi art contest.

6 PM: In partnership with the Mississippi Center for Justice, the Museum’s Center for Art & Public Exchange (CAPE) presents Re:frame—a dialogue featuring former Congressman and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Mike Espy and Footprint Farms owner Cindy Ayers in the galleries of White Gold: Thomas Sayre. The program will conclude with a tasting by Chef Nick Wallace, which pays culinary homage to the people who’ve worked the land in Mississippi.

6-7:30 PM: Greater Jackson Arts Council High Note Jam Concert featuring The Agape Christian Fellowship Choir and the Eyeshine Creative Arts Company on the C Spire Stage in The Art Garden.

8 PM: In partnership with Crossroads Film Festival, Museum After Hours presents a Screen on the Green showing of David Lynch's The Straight Story, in which a retired farmer with no driver's license makes an interstate odyssey on his trusty tractor.
