Calling all young Mississippi artists! The Mississippi Heritage Trust is looking for young artists with an interest in historic preservation to participate in the art exhibition “This Place Matters.” The theme of the exhibition, “This Place Matters”, is about choosing a historic place that is important to you and creating a work of art about that special place. This historic place could be your home, your church, your neighborhood or maybe even your whole town! Some artists may choose to paint, draw or photograph historic cemeteries, schools or courthouses.
The exhibition is open to all artists 18 years of age and younger. All artwork will be displayed at the November 14 announcement of the 10 Most Endangered Historic Places in Mississippi at the Cedars in Jackson. For more information about how you can participate, please visit http://www.mississippiheritage.com.
