The Islanders: Memphis College of Art and Horn Island

Exhibition Website

May 4 2017 - Aug 22 2017

For thirty-two years Memphis College of Art has followed in the footsteps of Walter Anderson and journeyed to Horn Island in search of inspiration. Each summer the college leads a group of students, faculty, alumni, and other artists out to the island for two weeks. The group camps primitively on the barrier island, exploring, creating artwork, and gleaning inspiration from the wild and windswept spit of land. 

This exhibition consists of fifty-seven works from the participants of Horn Island Trips 31 and 32. We invite you to join the Islanders and to experience Horn Island through their eyes.
