The SOUTHWEST MISSISSIPPI ARTIST GROUP PORTRAIT invites ANY self-identifying artist (visual, music, craft, etc) living and/or working in southwest Mississippi to present themselves in a large group portrait–organized by artist Jason Lazarus.
The goal of the portrait event is to foster exchange and connection amongst the wide range of artist communities that comprise southwest Mississippi (Adams, Amite, Claiborne, Franklin, Jefferson, Lawrence, Lincoln, Pike, Walthall and Wilkinson counties) and to create a historical moment for present and future generations.
The community will own the image and the right to reproduce, distribute, and manipulate the image. The image, in full resolution, will be available via free download, by the public, in perpetuity.
|Artist Market||Noon – 6PM|
|Artist Portrait (rain or shine)||3PM|
|Main Musical Guest||4:30PM|
This project is supported in part by funding from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Ruth Foundation for the Arts, and the Mississippi Arts Commission, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
