For photographers and those who appreciate interesting photographs:

It is too late to enter the “Take a Hike in Yoknapatawpha” photography contest for this year. However, entries and winners are now on display at the Union County Heritage Museum. The contest is part of the annual William Faulkner Literary Fest. The display will hang thru July 12, 2019. Check it out. We think you may get motivated to enter next year.

For artists, lovers of the arts, believers in the “never stop learning” lifestyle:

Museum Director, Jill Smith, won one of only 20 grants given nation-wide by Aroha Philanthropies. Its purpose is to foster creative aging centered on life-long learning. “The Nature of Printmaking” was one of a scheduled series of adult classes. The museum is currently featuring printmaking art that was created by local citizens. The art is creative, educational and lovely to look at. As a result of visiting,  you may even be inspired to participate in some (or all) of the remaining classes. This exhibit will hang through July 12th. See the link below for upcoming opportunities.
