About The Museum

The Meridian Museum of Art (MMA) is housed in the historic Old Carnegie Library building, which was constructed in 1912-13, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and as a Mississippi Landmark. The Museum seeks to promote and support the art, artists, and art programs of our area and region through art education, exhibitions, collections, collaborations with other organizations, special events, and community involvement. MMA programs are designed to further these goals and to make art accessible to everyone in the community. The Museum serves an audience from across the state and region, but primarily from Meridian and Lauderdale County and the surrounding counties: Kemper, Neshoba, Newton, Jasper, and Clarke (in MS), and Sumter and Choctaw (in AL).

Artist Groups

The Artists Group

The Museum’s Artists Group meets monthly (3rd Saturday) for painting sessions, demonstrations, workshops and classes, plein aire painting expeditions, exhibits, and field trips. Membership is open to all Museum members; there is no extra charge. The Artists Group is a direct descendant of the Painters Group, a key founding organization of the Museum itself.

Vino and Van Gogh

The Museum’s newest artist’s group meets weekly on Thursday evenings from 6-8 p.m.  Membership is open to all Museum members. This is the group that meets for fellowship to share ideas, draw, paint or just to discuss art.
