C3 2015: Meet the Artists!

Hello Mississippi! We are the HannaBerry Workshop, a collaborative studio made up of artists Sarah Qarqish and Morgan Welch. Together, we make Fine Art and Furniture in Jackson, MS!

We are so excited to be the 2015 artists in residence for the Mississippi Museum of Art’s annual Spring participatory art series, C3: Creativity. Community. Conversation.

We hope that you will join with others from around the state to contribute to this exciting project and add your piece to this collective artwork!

About the project:

With your help, we will be creating a piece of architecture to be installed in The Art Garden in early March, 2015. Looking Forward To Happiness came from the idea of collecting Mississippian’s “happy memories” and combining them in an aesthetically pleasing way, in efforts to focus on our shared...
