Delta Blues Museum Receives Sizable Grant

Delta Blues Museum has been awarded a $26,100 grant from the Mississippi Arts Commission (MAC) for general operating support. This grant represents the first year of a two-year Operating Grant, made possible by continued funding from the Mississippi State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts

“Arts organizations throughout the state of Mississippi play a pivotal role in sharing the power of the arts with people from all walks of life,” said Malcolm White, executive director of MAC. “The arts are for everyone, and the Mississippi Arts Commission is pleased to support arts organizations committed to growing the presence of the arts in their communities.” 

“Operating support from MAC is vital to the Delta Blues Museum’s ability to fulfill its mission through educational exhibits and programs, in our ongoing work to honor the artists who created this powerful art form known as ‘the Blues’,” offered Museum Director Shelley Ritter, adding that “Mississippi’s rich artistic heritage attracts visitors from around the globe whose lives have been enriched because of the contributions of our artists—this appreciation and interaction helps us identify shared values, thereby generating a higher quality of life for everyone.” The Local Voice Ligature
