Museum After Hours | Positive Spaces

Thursday, June 20, 2019

5:30 -10 PM

Every third Thursday, the Museum opens its doors after hours to partner with and embrace Mississippi's creative community. These collaborations feature one-night pop-up exhibitions, along with combinations of art-making, live music, outdoor movies, art making, and games.

This month, check out the Black Out-inspired silhouette works of local artists and create your own works of art in the Art Lab while enjoying the sounds of Nellie Mack & the Nellie Mack Project. Following a CAPE RE:frame conversation about documentation, immigration, and citizenship, let our resident gallery guru, Mr. Bill, take you on a 15-minute Art Ramble through the galleries. Got kids? We've got just the spot for them to hang out with books, games, bean bags, and more!

5:30-7:30 PM: Art Lab — Silkscreen printing ($5),
