Art. It’s in our blood, in our hearts, in our museums, in frames in our homes, and, in Jackson, it’s found in unexpected places. Local artists are defying tradition and creating their own rules when it comes to sharing their work. Electrical boxes become canvases, from yards become studios, homes become murals, and the line of what constitutes art on display is continuously and gloriously blurred, making Jackson’s creativity truly accessible for everyone. From the conversation-sparking giant Obama head greeting passersby in Fondren to a Northeast Jackson year teeming with steel-and-marble sculptural wonders, our city’s vibrant and artistic progression is on full display in a myriad of innovative ways.
