Art Talk

"Art Talk" is one of our ongoing programs here at LRMA. The third Thursday of most months (excluding December and summertime), we have a brown-bag lecture at noon. We provide drinks & dessert, you can bring your own lunch. Last month, we had Penny Kemp from the Riley Performaing Arts Center speak.

Kemp is Marketing Director of the Mississippi State University Riley Performing Arts Center located in the heart of downtown Meridian. She will discuss the $25 million renovation project that includes a broadcast studio, 30,000 square foot conference facility, and the Grand Opera House of Mississippi, which has been fully restored to its 1890s grandeur. I for one am excited about the ambitious programming at the Riley Center, and am looking forward to visiting it. I may even have to borrow some children so I can go to some of the kids' events.
