Mississippi’s cultural heritage lives in the lonesome wail of a bluesman; the story behind a country song; words of passion and prose, both written and spoken; and in the fragile curve of a vessel made of clay dug from a pine hills riverbank.
A heritage rich in cultural diversity defines Mississippi, home of some of the most creative talents in the world. From the Appalachian foothills to the heart of the Capital River area have come literary giants such as William Faulkner, John Grisham, Willie Morris, Eudora Welty, and Tennessee Williams.
Faces from Mississippi shine on the silver screen, the TV screen, and on the stages of Broadway. Those famous sons and daughters include Morgan Freeman, Beth Henley, James Earl Jones, Sela Ward, and Oprah Winfrey.
From the flat, fertile Delta come the haunting sounds of the Blues. Born of hardship and washed by the muddy memories of the Mississippi River, the music spread from ramshackle juke joints to world-class stages across the globe. Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Charley Patton, and Muddy Waters became legends beyond their time. Carrying on the tradition are artists such as James “Super Chikan” Johnson, and B.B. King, a legend in his own time.
The voices of Mississippi raise up with the legendary yodel of Jimmie Rodgers, the father of country music, and with the timeless sounds of Elvis Presley, the King of Rock N’ Roll. They roll on through Mississippi’s musical heritage with beloved performers such as Jimmy Buffett, Bo Diddley, Faith Hill, Charley Pride, LeAnn Rimes, Marty Stuart, Conway Twitty, and Tammy Wynette.
Deep in the Pine Woods dwell potters, quilters, walking stick makers, and woodcarvers such as George Berry who record the beauty of the state’s animals and birds in native oak, maple, and willow.
The Coastal sands and waters are an artist’s inspiration. Their beauty is captured on canvas and in the creations of legendary potters such as Peter Anderson and George Ohr.
The Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Center recognizes the creative spirit of these men and women, and celebrates the depth of the state’s cultural heritage. On board with the development of the Center is an Honorary Celebrity Committee that includes such famous Mississippians as Sela Ward, Faith Hill, Jimmy Buffett, Morgan Freeman, John Grisham, Jim Henson’s Kermit the Frog, B.B. King, Charley Pride, Britney Spears, and the group Three Doors Down.
Site preparation is currently underway with the demolition and removal of the previous structures making way for the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Center in the heart of Meridian Mississippi’s Arts and Entertainment District. Tourists already find their way here to stroll a Hollywood-style, star-studded Walk of Fame that honors outstanding Mississippi artists such as Jimmie Rodgers, B.B. King, Sela Ward, Marty Stuart, Morgan Freeman, and literary greats Eudora Welty, Tennessee Williams, and William Faulkner. More bronze stars bearing the names of famous Mississippians will be placed along the Walk of Fame in the future.
In addition to celebrating the richness and depth of the state’s cultural heritage, the goal of the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Center is to advance that legacy through education, exhibitions, performances, and ties to festivals and special events throughout the state.
Most important, though, the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Center opens the doors to the state’s rich heritage, provides cultural access to the past and the future, and offers inspiration for talented Mississippians whose greatness is yet to come.
Through the arts, Mississippi has touched the world. Now, through the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Center, Mississippians and the world can touch the arts.
