CLARKSDALE – Coahoma Community College’s Fine Art Department will partner with Clarksdale’s Rock and Blues Museum Friday, Dec. 2, to wrap up the semester with an art competition, exhibition and live music.

Local lovers of the arts are invited to join CCC students, faculty and staff from 3 to 6 p.m. on the first floor of CCC’s Barron-Miller Fine Arts Center and the Georgia Lewis Theater for the free event, which will also feature live music by Bill “Howl-N-Madd” Perry.

According to CCC Art Instructor Brad Bernard, the exhibit will showcase paintings, drawings, print making/ textile designs and digital art created in the Painting 1, Drawing 1, 2D Design, and Computer Art courses by Fine Art and Art Education majors.

The rock and blues inspired artwork will be judged for cash prize awards and one will even be selected as an image for Rock and Blues Museum promotional posters and t-shirts.

“The partnership between the CCC Fine Art Department and the Rock and Blues Museum provides art majors the opportunities to expose their talent to the surrounding community and the chance to be rewarded for their creative efforts,” said Bernard.

“The museum also provides an interactive approach to research where students can meet, interview, and photograph world renown blues musicians, making learning a fun and unforgettable experience.”
