mardi-cat-grasIn celebration of its 50th anniversary, the Mobile Museum of Art has partnered with the Mobile Carnival Museum and the History Museum of Mobile on a major exhibition of the creative enterprise that comprises our city’s annual spectacle of myth and revelry.
The Art & Design of Mardi Gras will open in early November 2014 and remain on view through the Spring of 2015.
Artists were invited to participate in the exhibition by submitting works that reflect their vision of Mardi Gras. Due to space limitations, only a limited number of contemporary works from local and regional artists will be selected for inclusion in the exhibition.
