About The Event
This even is postponed until further notice.
Walter Anderson sought harmony between humanity and the environment, in part as a response to what he observed as the destruction that accompanied modern society. In partnership with the Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, this interdisciplinary public program connects Anderson’s life and art to current Gulf Coast conservation efforts. Special guests include scientists from the Grand Bay NERR and Jack E. Davis, professor of history and the Rothman Family Chair in the Humanities at the University of Florida, where he specializes in environmental history and sustainability studies. In 2018, his book The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in history. Cost: Free to the public.
This program is part of the Museum’s Voice & Vision initiative that stages dialogues between the works of Walter Anderson and artifacts from other collections, along with voices across time and place. Voice and Vision includes four in-gallery installations composed of artworks, objects, scholarship, and documentary fieldwork, representing a diversity of stories and experiences rooted in the Southern land. Voice and Vision and its programs are financially assisted by the National Endowment for the Humanities through the Mississippi Humanities Council. Also supported by the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources.
