Museum Foyer, Galleries of New Symphony of Time
New Symphony of Time expands the boundaries of Mississippi’s identity, casting light on a shared past to help reflect an expansive, more inclusive future. To imagine a new way of engaging with art about Mississippi, phrases from Margaret Walker’s heroic poem “This Is My Century: Black Synthesis of Time” organize the exhibition into thematic areas that call forth ancestral wisdom, the strength of sheer survival, and the power of imagination to create a more harmonious world.
