The mission of the Mississippi School of the Arts is to provide a challenging arts education for artistically gifted Mississippi students in a residential learning environment that promotes honor, integrity, service, and life-long learning. And throughout its years of existence, MSA has been a crown jewel in the lives of many young artists. With the items listed here, Mississippi School of the Arts can continue to thrive by providing guest artists and events to the historic campus. The true impact is the ability to take possession of memorabilia from the revitalization of a college campus to a residential high school for the arts.
We welcome you to support MSA by purchasing an item for yourself or as a gift to someone special. For more information about the items listed here, contact MSA at 601-823-1300. We’ll be glad to assist you!
Meet at the Bell Tower
The Mississippi School of the Arts Foundation, Inc. is proud to present a signed, limited edition, numbered print from the Wyatt Waters Gallery. The print features the bell tower on the campus of Mississippi School of the Arts (formerly Whitworth College), dating back to the 1920’s. Also shown is Cooper Hall, a relic of Whitworth College and the last of the campus’ landmarks waiting to be restored. To the right is Johnson Institute. Constructed in 1883, Johnson currently houses the majority of arts and academic classrooms at MSA. The courtyard view was special during the days of Whitworth, and MSA carries the tradition to this day with seniors ringing bell at the end of their high school career.

The Lampton Collection
The Lampton Collection is a series of collectible items featuring the historic venue Mary Jane Lampton Auditorium, an icon of Brookhaven, Mississippi.

Lampton Auditorium was the performance space of former Whitworth College and a current space for Mississippi School of the Arts.

Your purchase through the Foundation goes directly toward the financial support of the school. All Lampton items will be available until completely out of stock.
