A reception was held on Sept. 22 in the Old Main Resource Building Gallery at Mississippi State University for “Symbols of Our State: A Walk through Mississippi Culture and Industry,” a Museums and Galleries Bicentennial Exhibit.

Objects, images, and curatorial interpretation of items from our collections that reflect the history and diversity of the state of Mississippi. The first portion of the exhibit will display examples of official state symbols, while the second half of the exhibit will focus on the economic resources, industry and cultural diversity that have shaped Mississippi into what it is today.
