Heard Pierce Pettis, July 3, 2014, in this beautiful, small theater. What a lovely venue for an intimate concert! Hope to get back for other events real soon.

I went there for a few events, story tellers from Japan and Cuba, and also the Conquistador film and I liked and truly enjoyed it immensely. Who would have thunk the culture that the little town of Columbus would bring in? Staff are really friendly and enjoyed the museum too and even made small contributions. I just know this place will grow by leaps and bounds keep up the good work and bring in your family fill them with our past, present and future..... Truly a surprising find in this little town with character.....

“Very Impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

I continue to be in awe about Columbus' history and culture. In my brief time there, I was impressed with how much the town has to offer. They could surely be a model for other towns. The Art Council is a perfect example of the strides Columbus has made in bringing culture to northeast Mississippi. Though the space is small, it is packed full of varied and interesting exhibits. There were three displayed while I visited, I only regret that I did not have more time to dedicate to this gem. A must while in Columbus!

“Beautiful! Really working hard to bring culture back to Columbus!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

I've been to two art exhibits, a play, and a workshop here. The stage and theater are small, but excellent for intimate productions. The downstairs gallery displays a variety of artwork at different times, mostly local artists. The staff are EXTREMELY friendly. I'm watching for the next event here!

“A Surprising Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Who would've thought that one could find such good art in a small, Southern town. There are actually three galleries in one; a large main gallery that rotates shows monthly, and two smaller ones that showcase local art. The main gallery has some very nice shows, and not just of Mississippi artists. It is really the only venue of it's kind in this entire area and shouldn't be missed if you are traveling through Columbus.
