Symbols of Faith, Home, and Beyond
March 23 – June 23, 2013
The Mississippi Museum of Art is pleased to present Symbols of Faith, Home, and Beyond, a survey of more than forty of Theora Hamblett’s best works from the Collection of the University of Mississippi Museum and Historic Houses. Hamblett, born in Paris, Mississippi, in 1895, has been described as “the most recognized visionary painter in America.” She began painting at the age of fifty-five, creating hundreds of scenes of early-day remembrances like the childhood games “Drop the Handkerchief” and “Ring Around the Rosie,” as well as many of her own dreams and visions. This exhibition explores different memories of faith, home, and beyond through the eyes of the master Mississippi artist. This exhibition is sponsored by BancorpSouth. Admission is $12 adults, $10 seniors, $6 students (includes admission to Old Masters to Monet).
