ADDITIONAL GRANTS AWARDED

Delta Blues Museum is pleased to announce additional grants awarded from our friends at the Mississippi Arts Commission (MAC).

Funds granted by MAC are made possible by continued funding from the Mississippi State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts. An Operating Grant will support ongoing expenses during the pandemic; the Rapid Response Grant supports the creation of new virtual tours of Delta Blues Museum, in an effort to support small-scale arts activities and to adapt artistic-focused work in an online setting.

We remain grateful to our funding partners for their ongoing support of our mission.
