Learn & Engage

The Mississippi Museum of Art offers educational programs and activities for learners of all ages.

Our mission to "engage Mississippians in the visual arts" extends beyond our collection and beyond our building. As an organization servicing our community through the visual arts, we know that art can build relationships, engage difficult subjects, and expand the potential of each Mississippian.
