USM's Museum of Art
The Museum at Southern Miss is composed of three exhibition galleries: the C. W. Woods Art Gallery, the Lok Exhibition Gallery and Gallery II. Since its establishment, the museum has become one of the most heavily attended museums in the state and attracts over 20,000 visitors annually. The university's Museum of Art is dedicated to presenting many of the finest art exhibitions in Mississippi. Not only do contemporary artists from around the country exhibit in the museum's galleries, but the list of historically important artists whose works have been exhibited since 1997 is long and varied.
