THIS LAND | Following Faulkner

A conversation with Oxford, MS-based photographer and ethnobotanist Ed Croom, who discusses the convergences of nature, culture, and history at William Faulkner's Rowan Oak.

THIS LAND spotlights the work of creators across the South through multimedia collaborations and digital expressions, such as video essays, films, photo journals, and podcasts. Ideas generated trough this yearlong program will inform future exhibitions, while illuminating the wide-ranging and individualized artistic experiences that emerge in relation to the contemporary landscape. This project is funded in part by a grant from South Arts with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional support provided by the Mississippi Arts Commission.

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.
