About The Event
The R&B Feder Foundation is buying your ticket to the Museum on Saturday, December 4 in commemoration of the Museum's 30th anniversary. Come one, come all to discover the Museum's 30th anniversay exhibition, The South’s Most Elusive Artist, and explore our newest exhibition inspired by nature morte, or “dead nature," - Bearing Witness: Southern Visual Elegies. Thank you for the support, Misty and Ron!
1. The South’s Most Elusive Artist includes more than 85 works by Walter Inglis Anderson from WAMA’s permanent collection and that of the Family of Walter Anderson. The exhibition commemorates the Museum’s 30th anniversary, and includes rarely seen watercolors, block prints, wood carvings, ceramics, and sketches alongside some of Anderson’s most recognizable and iconic works.
WAMA's exhibition calendar is presented by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi and the Mississippi Arts Commission. The South’s Most Elusive Artist is sponsored by the R&B Feder Foundation, Coastal Mississippi, Hancock Whitney, Balch and Bingham and the MS Department of Marine Resources.
2. Bearing Witness: Southern Visual Elegies showcasing work of two artists, one passed, one living, who were inspired by nature morte, or "dead nature." This exhibition explores themes of death, remembrance, and rebirth through the lenses of art and the Southern land and features more than 60 works, primarily by Mississippi artists Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965) and Jason Bouldin (b. 1965). “Bearing Witness” was developed in partnership with the University of Mississippi Museum with support from the O’Keefe Family Endowment for the Walter Anderson Museum of Art. This exhibition is financially assisted by the National Endowment for the Humanities through the Mississippi Humanities Council.
