Five exhibits to be featured at LRMA in 2021

LAUREL, Miss. (WDAM) - 2021 will be a big year for exhibitions at the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art.

Five different exhibits will be showcased in the coming months.

One will have sculptures inspired by the history of the timber industry in Laurel.

Another will have several works from African-American artists.

A third will have contemporary Japanese woodblock prints and other exhibits will feature plaster sculptures and works from southern photographers.

Museum director George Bassi says although the exhibition schedule will be busy, the museum is postponing many other activities, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“One good thing that we usually try to do is have lectures and talks and activities for kids and those things are probably going to be on hold, at least for the first six months of the year, until we get a handle on what the public can and can’t do as they interact here at the museum,” Bassi said. “But, our exhibition schedule is varied and I think that we’ll have a lot of interest for people.”

The exhibitions run from late January through mid-November.
