Mississippi Museum of Art
Jackson, MS

The architecture of the Museum is a tangible manifestation of a philosophical mission to “engage Mississippians in the visual arts,” a statement that focuses on community interaction and personal experience. The facility’s brilliant architectural makeover reflects the Museum’s mission to become a symbolic “museum without walls” – an inviting public space that offers relevant and meaningful cultural experiences to both the Jackson community and the state of Mississippi. The completed building represents Phase 1 of the decade-long plan to transform the Museum’s surroundings into a cohesive cultural district in Downtown Jackson.
