  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.

  4. Norman Rockwell: Murder in Mississippi

    June 14 - August 31 @ Mississippi Museum of Art

    The Donna and Jim Barksdale Galleries for Changing Exhibitions On June 21, 1964, civil rights activists Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney were brutally murdered in Neshoba County, Mississippi. Several months later, LOOK Magazine commissioned an investigative article about the incident entitled “Southern Justice,” and painter Norman Rockwell was asked to provide an illustration for the magazine’s cover. Over the course of five weeks, Rockwell intensively studied the circumstances of the murders, made many preliminary drawings, photographs, a preparatory oil sketch, and the finished painting entitled Murder in Mississippi. This exhibition presents the iconic masterpiece in the context of many related works and thus illuminates the artist’s creative process.
