Authorities have recovered the body of a 6-year-old boy who apparently drowned after an all-terrain vehicle overturned in a Mississippi creek, while the search for his brother continued.
The approaching new year means three exciting new exhibits have opened at the Ohr O'Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi. The trio of exhibitions have a common theme: Mississippi.
Terry Tjader of Petal repurposes wood. In the Welcome Center, you'll find how he's transformed Hurricane Katrina damaged trees into beautiful works of art.
"The important part of his work is he collects pieces lost in Katrina and gives them new life as things of beauty," said Curator Barbara Ross.
Over in the IP Gallery, Painter Dusti Bonge' is featured in an exhibit titled "Revisiting the Legacy." With roots in Biloxi, Ross says Bonge' was considered Mississippi's first significant modernist painter.
"She was mainly known as a New York artist and now she's becoming known as a Biloxi painter."
In the 1940s and 50s, Bonge' captured her native Biloxi with her brilliant and colorful depictions of the seafood industry. Later in life, she became well known for her large, abstract pieces.
Dusti Bonge' is a South Mississippi treasure is being rediscovered.
In the African American Gallery, you'll find unique creations from the heart and soul of Lydia Thompson.
Thompson serves as Head of the Department of Art at Mississippi State University. She's known for her mixed media, using a wide variety of materials, like porcelain characters that represent cotton balls.
"Her inspiration for these pieces came from her travels through the Delta," said Ross.
All eyes are on the pods envisioned by Architect Frank Gehry. They will become one of a kind galleries sometime in 2013.
