Participants in the Museum’s Hoot & Holler Family Creation Lab class recently made a large collaborative drawing. It’s 50” x 32”,made in oil pastel on paper, and illustrates downtown Jackson.
Hoot & Holler Family Creation Lab is held each second Sunday, and is open to families with children ages 6 – 10. Led by Hollingsworth Fellow and artist Adam Farcus, attendees join in a collaborative art project inspired by a different artist each month. Families are guided in conversations around works by the selected artist followed by related studio projects in the classroom. Families will not only leave with an art work, but will learn techniques they can repeat and expand on at home.
Take a look at our events calendar here to learn more about the next Family Creation Lab, held Sunday, April 9. What will you create?

The latest in our Art in Us All Community Exhibition Series is now hanging in the public corridor, free to the public. The program invites nonprofit organizations in Mississippi to showcase art created by their constituents. In this installment, we celebrate the Mustard Seed, a non-profit and Christian community for adults with developmental disabilities. Mustard Seed was founded in 1981 to meet the spiritual, physical, emotional, and intellectual needs of adults with special needs; their work has long included a studio art component led by distinguished Mississippi artists.
Learn more about the exhibition, and meet a few of the many “Seedsters” below. Visit the exhibition to see the art up close and to read more heartfelt stories.
