Meridian Art Museum Features "Art Around Alabama"

Meridian, Miss. The Meridian Museum of Art brought in a crowd Saturday night for a special art show.

The show featured "Art Around Alabama." Seven artists from across Alabama contributed art. This show included about 30 different pieces, including everything from 3D works to paintings and sculptures. Patrons from the community and students from MCC were invited to attend, as well as the organization's members who enjoy seeing new artwork on a regular basis.

"We invite all of our members, who are current members of our museum, and want them to see new work," Meridian Museum of Art Executive Director Kate Cherry says. "We always try to have new work for the members to see."

The museum tries to rotate temporary showings like this once every two months.
