Since 2008, MAC has partnered with Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB) to produce “The Mississippi Arts Hour,” a weekly arts interview show that showcases creative Mississippians. MAC staff talk with a variety of guests, including visual artists, writers, musicians, as well as people who help to promote the arts in their community. Past guests have included writer Angie Thomas, musician Charlie Mars, and folklorist Bill Ferris.

“The Mississippi Arts Hour” is broadcast Sunday afternoons at 5:00pm on MPB’s statewide radio network (click here for a map that shows the MPB station in your area). MPB posts all past “Arts Hour” shows as streaming files on their website as well as on iTunes. Archived shows from 2006-2014 are available on the “Arts Hour Archive” on iTunes. Check our Events Calendar and Facebook page to find out who will be on MS Arts Hour this week.
