The mission of the Mississippi Museum of Art Affiliate Network, which consists of approximately 30 not-for-profit organizations in Mississippi, is to increase the engagement of the state’s many communities in the visual arts by utilizing the Museum’s most significant resource—artworks from the Mississippi Museum of Art’s Permanent Collection.

Museum After Hours | Music in Motion
Thursday, November 21, 2019
Every third Thursday, the Museum opens its doors after hours to partner with and embrace Mississippi’s creative community! Museum After Hours is a family-friendly mix of one-night pop-up exhibitions, live music, films, art-making activities, games, and more.
This month’s pop-up exhibit showcases the lively work of artist and musician Don Jacobs. Enjoy the live, genre-bending tunes of Inasense, (DJ MissiHippian and vocalist Deja Samuel), catch Power APAC’s dance department mini-performances in the galleries, make a mask like artist Nick Cave at the Art Lab table, learn more about the Mississippi School of the Arts from some very special guests, and grab a seat for the final fall installment of our Art on Film series: Finster.
After Hours bonus: At 5 PM, James Meredith will lead a conversation about exploring the Constitution and citizenship through art focused on Mildred Wolfe’s Four Freedoms, and at 7 PM, play the power board game, Curious Questions for Curious Citizens, with Michael Harris and artist daniel johnson.

Using the medium of film, the Museum explores the stories of the artists and art on view in its new ongoing permanent collection exhibition, New Symphony of Time. This month, Art on Film presents Finster, a feature-length documentary film by Ava Leigh Stewart about the “grandfather of the Southern Folk Art movement” that colorfully shows how art can thrive outside of museums and galleries in ordinary places and in everyday objects.
