MODERN MS poster

Earlier this year four architecture students at Mississippi State University’s College of Art, Architecture and Design compiled photos of modern architecture in Mississippi. Our state is better known for antebellum homes than the clean lines of the mid-century modernists, but this exhibit shows that Mississippi has beautiful examples from this time period as well. Fifteen buildings are displayed through thirty 18″x24″ black and white images, as well as hundreds of 4″x6″ snapshots of building details.

We are excited to currently be hosting these images throughout downtown Greenwood. The exhibit opened last weekend with the help of Mainstreet Greenwood during the annual Que on the Yazoo bar-b-que festival. Images are free to visit and can be found at ArtPlace Mississippi, Mississippi Gift Company, The Winery at William’s Landing, Beard + Riser Architects, and Howard and Marsh Exchange.
