There wasn't any big show--Monet had just moved out--just the permanent exhibits. But they were enough. They're mostly by artists with a Mississippi connection or about Mississippi (though a small room near the entrance had some nice Piranesis). Very interesting! Many of the artists are, or were, talented, and there are things other than paintings--photographs by Eudora Welty (who knew?) for example.
Good thinking by the museum! The contents are much better than the second-rate productions by second-rate artists that some small museums have. I didn't know what I was in for, and I was very pleasantly surprised. And enlightened.
And it's free! Amazing. Thanks, Jackson.
