“Our mission is to empower lifelong curiosity and connection to the natural world through the art of Walter Anderson and kindred artists.
The Walter Anderson Museum of Art inspires discovery, imagination, and community-building on the Gulf Coast and beyond through programs, exhibitions, and outreach; and embodies Walter Anderson’s vision for societies in harmony with their environments.”
During this period of solitude, museums, art galleries and libraries have worked tirelessly to remain connected and vibrant. Their creative use of technology to bring messages via e-mail and all social media venues has been heartening and life-affirming.
In this series of posts, ChasingART is giving a shoutout to Art Galleries and Museums. The next stop on this journey is the Walter Anderson Museum of Art, located at 510 Washington Avenue, Ocean Springs, Mississippi.
Special thanks goes out to my dear blogger friend, Lisa, from the remarkable blog Zeebra Designs and Destinations for the introduction. I had never heard of Walter Anderson or the Museum that is bears his name before Lisa’s suggestion to feature Walter Anderson’s legacy on ChasingART.
The Walter Anderson Museum of Art website is a place of learning and inspiration. The stories are poignant and speak to humanity’s deep need to be connected to nature and to all who inhabit our world. I invite you to share this tour with me. Every click leads to a new adventure.
