Four day residency with Lonnie Holley at WAMA

Students in Jackson County had the opportunity of a lifetime at the Walter Anderson Museum of Art.

Young artists learned and picked the mind of artist Lonnie Holley as they helped him create sculptures made from material found on the Coast and Horn Island.

This summer residency allowed Holley to show the students and others on the Coast just how valuable materials can be, especially when it comes to artistic creativity. WAMA Executive Director Julian Rankin said, “He’s been teaching all of us and really showing what the material we live with, what that really means and what it can say about how we interact with the world we live in.”

Holley said, “Do something about it because if we don’t do anything about it, it’s just gonna float around and gather into big mountains worth of our trash, garbage, and debris.”
