The World

In our other exhibits, THE MAX reveals the ways Mississippi has influenced our artists, whether through The Land, The Community, The Home, The Church and Place. In this exhibit called THE WORLD, THE MAX shifts our focus outward. Here, we reveal the many ways Mississippians have influenced creativity worldwide.

Through reality or stereotype, the distinct characteristics of Mississippi have permeated our international creative and popular culture, through literature, music, food, film, television, fine arts, craft traditions and performances.

As you explore THE WORLD, you’ll discover the lasting creative impact of Mississippians on art and artists across the globe.

THE WORLD is an interactive space that will inspire visitors to make connections, start dialogues, encourage relationships and showcase the breadth of Mississippi’s creative power.
