McComb Arts (mccombarts.com) serves as a communication channel for Pike School of Art – Mississippi.
In fall of 2021, Pike School of Art – Mississippi in partnership with the City of McComb, received a National Endowment for the Arts Our Town grant. The purpose for the grant is to support the creation of a public master art plan for the benefit of the newly formed McComb Arts and Entertainment District (MAP). The project will identify arts and cultural assets and engage community stakeholders to use these assets to activate the district. By bringing together a wide range of programming including workshops, dance and music performances, artist residencies, and music and heritage festivals, offered through multiple partnerships, the project will fuel revitalization of long-distressed parts of the city and restore a sense of community pride.
This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit www.arts.gov.
