Visitors Center to host inaugural art exhibit by young artists

Saddle up! The Gulf Coast School of Art is going to take you through a historical journey with “Come Together: The Colours of Civil War,” an exhibit on Jan. 26, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Biloxi Visitors Center.

The exhibit will feature a collective and conceptual twist to the
nation’s first modern war through a collaboration of artwork designed to fit a
36×48 exhibit canvas.

Gulf Coast School of Art students have spent months of research and educational resourcing to prepare for the public showcase.

Tickets are $15 if purchased before Jan. 26 or $20 at the door. Call GCSA at 228 216-7858.
