Mississippi has a rich tradition of visual arts, and this is an important focus of the permanent collection. 

“Mississippi Artists from the Permanent Collection” is an annual offering, but with many new acquisitions on display the exhibition takes on a new freshness.

The collection was first established in 1948 by department chair Dr. Ralph Hudson to help educate art majors. As one of the earliest publicly held permanent art collections in the state, the university’s permanent collection houses approximately 900 works of art..
