New Acquisitions

Works by Benny Andrews, McArthur Binion, Jeffrey Gibson, Titus Kaphar, Glenn Ligon, Deborah Luster, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Noah Saterstrom, and Hank Willis Thomas

The Mississippi Museum of Art is excited to announce a slate of important new acquisitions of contemporary art to the collection. These acquisitions reinforce its mission of engaging Mississippians with visual art and further its commitment to empowering arts-based community dialogue that investigates issues of local and national significance. These acquisitions run parallel with a new initiative at the Museum funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Center for Art & Public Exchange (CAPE), the purpose of which is to use original artworks, exhibitions, programs, and engagements with artists to increase understanding and inspire new narratives in contemporary Mississippi.

Acquisitions include: Benny Andrews (1930-2006), Mississippi River Bank (Trail of TearsSeries), 2005; McArthur Binion (b. 1946), DNA: Black Painting: IV, 2015; Jeffrey Gibson (b. 1972), Sharecropper, 2015; Titus Kaphar (b. 1976), Darker Than Cotton, 2018; Read More
