WLOX Editorial: What will survive the test of time?
Have you ever stopped to wonder what people will remember about South Mississippi 100 years or 500 years from now? What will survive the test of time and reflect the world we live in today? Many believe one of the answers is art.
It's the artists who capture the essence of our beautiful coast. Already we see the legacy of the Mad Potter of Biloxi, George Ohr, and from Ocean Springs, artist Walter Anderson.
Anderson's work is steeped in the nature of the Gulf Coast. His waves, sea life and images of nature make him known across the globe. A few days ago, the museum built in his honor, got a little bigger.
The Walter Anderson Museum of Art officially opened its almost two thousand square foot expansion. This expansion is a wonderful investment for our community. Now we can see more of Anderson's work, and that of other artists.
The museum is a living legacy to the art Walter Anderson created for us. We tip our hats to all involved in maintaining and growing the museum. The museum helps to insure that Anderson's reflection of our coast, will live on for generations.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post your comments below.
