Event Details

Other Information

Art in Mind is an interactive art therapy program which invites individuals experiencing memory loss or mild cognitive impairment and their care partner to explore the Mississippi Museum of Art galleries and make their own works of art. By stimulating observation, recall, and response, this program helps participants manage their stress or anxiety, cope with change, and gain personal insight. This offering is facilitated by licensed art therapist Susan Anand and an MMA Educator. To register, contact Jennifer Knight at 601.496.MIND (option 2) or by Friday, June 17. 

For the safety and consideration of all staff and participants, the Mississippi Museum of Art has adopted the following protocol for the return to in-person studio programs:  

  • Registration will be required in advance and capped at 8 people to allow for safe distancing per session.   
  • Proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test (within 24 hours of the session) is required for all attendants.
