Great opportunity for Rankin County Arts Alliance. Read on!

Mary Porter, a valued member of the Rankin County Arts Alliance, shared this exciting opportunity with me on Friday, January 25, 2008---and all of our members have a chance to be a part of it!
Mississippi Diagnostic Laboratory is looking for artists to have artwork on display over the next 6 months. The Rankin County Arts Alliance will be able to have over 20 pieces of artwork on their walls over that time period to be switched out after 3 months to allow fresh art.
This is the first time that the RCAA has had this opportunity! We thank Mary for letting us know about this venue, but in order to participate you have to be at the MS Diagnostic Laboratory between 10:00-10:30a.m. on Saturday, February 2, 2008. Please bring all the artwork you want considered for this showing, and we will hang it according to a first come, first serve basis and is contingent on the space available.
The laboratory is off of Airport Rd.  You will take Airport road going toward Whitfield.  There is a 3 way stop and you will take a right at the 3 way stop and go approximately 1-3/10 of a mile to the lab.  There will be a Rankin Juvenile Court System, State Surplus Property and the Forestry Academy and then the Diagnostic Lab. The address is 3137 Hwy. 468 W, Pearl, MS.
If you have any questions, feel free to let me know via email or by contacting me at 601.896.5616.
