"Not only are we celebrating the state's birthday, we are celebrating a landmark anniversary of the Museum's building - that's the real icing on the cake," says Anna Burnett, Museum trustee and benefit co-chair. It is hard to believe the Museum has been in its incredible state-of-the-art location for ten years.
“We are looking forward to all the fun and frivolity we have in store for this year’s gala,” said Sara Ragsdale, benefit co-chair. “The festivities are sure to please the young and the young-at-heart, all the while helping to support the Museum’s ongoing programs and exhibitions. Make it a special date night, or instead of hosting a dinner party in your home, buy a table and invite your friends; it’s a win-win! We are sure that a good time will be had by all, and life’s too short to say no to cake!”
We hope to see you in your festive party attire on April 7th! Come support our art museum, which continues to share Mississippi's visual art legacy. Proceeds from the spring benefit fuel a robust schedule of outstanding educational programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
