  1. Animal Grossology Exhibit

    May 17, 9:00 AM - December 30, 5:00 PM @ Mississippi Museum of Natural Science

    Oozing with disgusting science and interactive learning games, the all-new Animal Grossology exhibit is sure to provide a unique perspective on the animal kingdom. The Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, in conjunction with Advanced Exhibits, the exhibit's producer, invites you to experience some of the slimiest, stinkiest and downright yuckiest creatures on earth. The exhibition contains solid science and introduces it in a way that makes kids giggle. It is science disguised in interactive entertainment and kids are more apt to learn when they're having fun doing it. The exhibition was created and produced by Advanced Exhibits, a division of Advanced Animations LLC, in collaboration with Sylvia Branzei, the author of the GROSSOLOGY series of books. The books are published through Price Stern Sloan, a member of Penguin (USA) Inc.

  2. Icons of Freedom

    May 24 - June 29 @ Mississippi Museum of Art, The William B. and Isabel R. McCarty Foundation Gallery

    The faces of the Civil Rights Movement belonged to unrecognized volunteers as well as to the visible leaders of the movement. Artworks in this exhibition portray some of the most celebrated leaders, foot soldiers, and innocent casualties of the fight for freedom in Mississippi and in America during the 1950s and 1960s. Three lithographs by Ben Shahn (1898-1969) are lent by The Andrew Goodman Foundation and depict Civil Rights workers James Chaney, Michael Schwerner, and Andrew Goodman, who were murdered in Philadelphia, Mississippi, in June 1964. Also on view are an etching by John Wilson (born 1922) of Martin Luther King, Jr., portraits of Medgar and Myrlie Evers by Jason Bouldin (born 1965), and an unfinished quilt by Gwendolyn A. Magee (1943-2011) that honors the participants of the historic Freedom Rides to the Deep South.
