MSA Fundraiser

The Mississippi School of the Arts and the MSA Foundation invite you to a special fundraising event on Saturday, January 27th at 7pm.  John Maxwell, a southern writer, actor and director, will perform his one-man show “Oh, Mr. Faulkner, Do You Write?” A dinner in Enochs Hall will be provided prior to the show. The evening will begin in the Enochs Art Gallery with a dinner by Chef Ken Dixon. Tour the gallery space with Greg Cartmell’s art exhibition currently on show. Afterwards, the one-man show will be performed in the Enochs Theater. Tickets are $50 per person (includes dinner and show).

“John Maxwell’s critically acclaimed one-man show based on the life of William Faulkner is filmed before a live audience in Faulkner’s home town of Oxford, Mississippi. In a rare visit to Faulkner’s study, we get a glimpse of the literary giant and Nobel laureate’s character and psyche. The story is set in 1950, as Faulkner ruminates on his past and ponders if he should indeed accept the Nobel Prize For Literature that was awarded to him.”

In 2017-18, MSA had a budget cut that has deeply impacted operational capacity. These events are an effort to raise funds for the school while maintaining high quality programming for the students and community.
