The Islander PIGnic on Porter (1)
Time & Location
About The Event
| PRESENTED BY HANCOCK WHITNEY |
Also sponsored by Allen Beverages, Cathead Distillery, Dos & Lucy Hetrick, Rain Residential, and the business of The Collective.
The spirt of the island comes to the mainland for a socially-distanced evening of open air dining, drink, yard games, performance, live readings, and creative economy. This benefit for the Walter Anderson Museum of Art event is held at the site of The Collective, a forthcoming mixed-use development by Rain Development in downtown Ocean Springs championing creative economy, environmental sustainability, and coastal culture.
The evening celebrates the re-publication of Walter Anderson’s Horn Island Logs by University Press of Mississippi, the definitive collection of the artist’s writings influenced by time spent on the barrier islands. Books can be purchased as part of ticket packages, or on-site.
Join us for a "cochon de lait" picnic, musical performances and readings, specialty brews and cocktails, and a first taste of the the coast's coolest new community development in the making, including an open-house of one of The Beatnik cabins.
A word about masks and such: We will continue adhering to health and safety guidelines and recommendations from local, state, and federal officials, and will maintain distancing between guest parties. Until further notice, attendees will be asked to wear masks when in areas of close mingling, but may be removed when back at your picnic blanket, table, or when socializing in a socially distanced manner.
