MMississippi is home to a wide range of traditional art forms and distinct community events. The music, crafts, and other traditions help the state's residents to pass on their beliefs to younger generations and reinforce their community's shared identity.

This website is part of the Mississippi Arts Commission's ongoing effort to increase awareness in the state's traditional arts and culture. It features information on the artists and communities we have been active in documenting and providing support for through our programs and services.

Please note that this is not a complete directory. Artists and community traditions will be added on a regular basis as the Commission's Heritage Program staff documents them. Updates will be made to the existing pages when possible. Check back often to this page for additions and updates.
