  • Cottonlandia Museum
    Dedicated to preserving Mississippi’s heritage, Cottonlandia Museum educates visitors with an array of interdisciplinary displays and collections. Cottonlandia’s permanent exhibits and rooms include the Mississippi Art Collection, an anthology of Mississippi-made art, most of it purchased from the winners of the biannual Cottonlandia Fine Arts Competition, and the Archaeology Room, home to a large assortment of Native American beads and a 12,000 year-old mastodon skeleton that they used to hang sabertooth fur coats. Meanwhile, the Malmaison Room presents photographs and furniture salvaged from the home of county namesake Greenwood Leflore, the last chief of the Choctaw tribe before their removal to Oklahoma, and the Swamp Room lets guests absorb the sights and sounds of the wetlands without brewing their own bog water out of bullfrog tears.

  • Oxford Shakespeare Festival
    Dedicating its 2011 slate to "A Season of Intrigue," the Oxford Shakespeare Festival presents three plays rife with mistaken identities and the lives of legendary kings. Helmed by artistic director Joe Turner Cantú, Twelfth Night transforms the intimate Meek Hall Auditorium into the shores of Illyria, where Viola, disguised as a young page, upends the courts of Duke Orsino and Lady Olivia, comically thrusting great humiliation upon the pompous Malvolio.

  • The University of Mississippi Museum
    Author William Faulkner, satirist Stark Young, and art collector Mary Skipwith Buie share something in common—they've all lent their legacies to The University of Mississippi Museum. Originally opened in 1939, the complex encompasses the one-time home of Faulkner, Rowan Oak; registered Mississippi landmark Walton-Young Historic House, which housed famed satirist Stark; and a historic art museum built around Buie’s private collection. Today, the museum uses its three sites to preserve and showcase the artistic past and cultural heritage of the American South through exhibits, demonstrations, and education. Guides lead scheduled tours though the historic homes and the museum exhibitions to avoid waking napping sculptures. Rotating exhibits center on genres such as Southern folk art by self-taught painters, ancient Chinese ceramics art, and mixed-media works by modern artists. The four permanent collections provide a home for lasting assemblages of 19th-century scientific instruments; Greek and Roman works of art; pieces by American modernists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Arthur Dove, and John Marin; and a range of Civil War relics, antique costumes, and letters penned by George Washington and John Adams. As part of the museum's focus on education, instructors lead adult studio workshops on topics such as outdoor nature photography, woodcut printmaking, and watercolors. They also let younger artists explore exhibits, use studio space, and question German expressionism's use of forced perspective in ArtZone and summer camp programs.

  • The University of Mississippi Theatre Department
    For its last show of the season, the University of Mississippi’s versatile theatre department stages a musical comedy trafficking in the unseedy underbelly of middle-school spelling bees. The Tony Award–winning show focuses on six young misfits, who, unlike the cast of The Breakfast Club, don’t solve their social quandaries using cage fights and alchemy. Instead, the group of outcasts, with their engaging quirks and Scrabble-y wordiness, learn important coming-of-age lessons, such as the true meaning of winning and whether money can buy love, happiness, or hand-carved birdbaths. Director Rory Ledbetter leads a small cast of talented college students in a comic celebration of spelling, singing, and friendship-based remedies for psychologically scars.
