It’s the 50th anniversary of the Mississippi Arts Commission, and Meek School Assistant Professor Alysia Burton Steele is one of three keynote speakers.

You are invited to “Come As You Art” to the event Thursday, Oct. 18 at the Mississippi State Capitol building. The free, daylong conference is described as an opportunity for artists, arts organizations, arts educators and arts enthusiasts to learn, share and network.

“Featuring compelling speakers, helpful workshops and fun activities, conference participants will leave inspired and ready to greet the next challenge with creative solutions,” the Mississippi Arts Commission website reports.

Casual and creative dress is encouraged. After the conference, attendees can celebrate MAC’s 50th birthday at a reception hosted by MAC’s Board of Commissioners at the Mississippi Museum of Art.
