Into the Vault

Updated: Feb 22

This growing library of short video vignettes explores the multitude of art historical and cultural connections present in the Museum's collection. Behind lock and key, the Vault holds secret treasures...


The Imagined Landscape

"THE WORLD WAS A MAGICAL PLACE..."

Movement and Migration

"WALTER ANDERSON WAS A COLLECTOR OF IDEAS..."


Anderson's Birds

"HE HAD COME TO SEE HIMSELF AS A PART OF NATURE..."


Architecture of the Universe

"IT TELLS US A LOT ABOUT WALTER ANDERSON'S WORLDVIEW. BY GOING OUT INTO NATURE, HE WAS ABLE TO TAP INTO DIFFERENT REALITIES..."

The Big River

"THE GULF OF MEXICO WOULD NOT BE WHAT IT IS WITHOUT THE RIVERS THAT FEED IT, ESPECIALLY THE BIG RIVER, THE MISSISSIPPI..."

Foodways

"...HE UNDERSTOOD THAT NATURE AND WILDLIFE DID NOT EXIST IN ISOLATION FROM HUMANITY..."

The Museum and its programs are supported in part by the City of Ocean Springs and Jackson County. Support is also provided in part by funding from the Mississippi Arts Commission, a state agency, and in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
