For the Love of Art

Art at has been an important element at the Mississippi Library Commission since we opened our doors in our new location back in 2006. In the ten years since, we have hosted artists and art groups in Mississippi who have displayed watercolors and wood, glass and gouache, pastels and portraiture, and everything in between. The art exhibits not only add beauty to our building, but they also bring in members of the community who might not visit the library otherwise. Our exhibits generally run for two months, with a special reception during the second month of the show. Due to recent budget cuts, exhibits in our building will be changing. Plans are in the making for a great variety of displays, programs, and exhibits, and we can't wait to show you what we have in store for you next. In the meantime, please enjoy this roll call of all the groups and artists who have displayed here over the last decade.
