A celebration of Mississippi’s rich musical heritage, A Cast of Blues features resin-cast masks of blues legends created by artist Sharon McConnell-Dickerson, as well as framed photographs of blues artists by photographer Ken Murphy.
Featured musicians include B.B. King, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Ruth Brown, James Cotton, and Willie King.
The exhibition is fully accessible, and visitors are encouraged to touch the resin-cast masks. The masks and images tell the story of the hopes, sorrows, and triumphs of the men and women who lived and breathed the blues in Mississippi.

Hours: 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, Sept. 11-Oct. 24.
