NO HOMEWORK | ALL RECESS | ALL AGES
The Mississippi Museum of Art will be hosting its Third Thursday Museum After Hours TOMORROW NIGHT, August 18th! Julian Rankin, Marketing Director, says, "It's themed 'Back to School' and celebrates the nostalgia of the school experience, showcases art made on chalkboard by local artists, and much more!"
Every third Thursday, the Museum opens its doors to celebrate Mississippi's creative community. Each month features a fun new theme and story, and this month's "Back to School" should not be missed! The museum says, "The night includes a pop up exhibition showcasing original contemporary Mississippi artwork made with chalk on blackboard; pop up dining with Executive Chef Nick Wallace presenting elevated modern cuisine in a playfully recreated school cafeteria; a 'Picture Day' selfie booth to capture the awkward poses and backdrops of back-in-the-day school portraits; head-to-head paper football tournament; live music; and more!"
It sounds like the perfect evening to celebrate school! Whether you have children in elementary school or graduated decades ago, we hope to see all of you at the museum tomorrow evening! For more information on the event, please visit the Museum After Hours - Back to School Facebook page here!
