Showing since November 2019 the exhibit features the work of two artists, Alysia Burton Steele and Betty Press, displaying photographs in Mississippi from an outsider’s perspective.
Twin States caught up with one visitor of the exhibit before it leaves Meridian.
“ Coming in I thought it was pretty interesting and it’s clean and it was attractive, my fiancée is here visiting , so I figure it’s one of the –I guess monuments, we can see here in Meridian, Mississippi”, said Richard Alfsen
“It kind of mirrors off of my thoughts in just everything in Mississippi is just slow and its chill. I guess the right terminology is it’s that retirement life --community”, said Alfsen.
The curator at the MAX hopes to rotate the exhibit to other museums in and outside of Mississippi.
