Museum After Hours | Back to School Edition

Thursday, August 15, 2019

5:30 - 8 PM

Every third Thursday we host Museum After Hours, when we open the doors after hours to partner with and embrace Mississippi's creative community. These collaborations feature one-night pop-up exhibitions and food trucks, along with combinations of live music, outdoor movies, and games. This month, the Museum is lending a helping hand to teachers and students with a school supply drive! The community is invited to drop off supplies at the Museum during business hours between now and August 15 for distribution to our area teachers. (Don’t forget about sketchbooks and drawing supplies for those superstar art teachers out there!) Every pack of pencils and crayons makes a big difference in making sure our educators have what they need to share their passion for learning with their students!

This family-friendly event is free and open to the public.
