An International Art Experience in the Midwest
Jackson has a flourishing art scene that provides the perfect opportunity to see art your group may not normally experience. St. Demetrius Orthodox Church provides an international art experience right here in the Midwest with its floor-to-ceiling Byzantine Frescos. Known as “Windows to Heaven”, this style of painting has been used throughout the world for over 1,800 years. For a more modern art experience, head to downtown Jackson to see dozens of brightly painted murals created by internationally acclaimed artists during the Bright Walls mural festival.
Nestled within the mature trees of the Ella Sharp Park, the Ella Sharp Museum holds galleries of exquisite artwork and artifacts from the beauty of wildlife art featuring paintings, wood carvings, mounted examples and prints; to the Not Enough Time gallery dedicated to timepieces from decades past! There are several rotating galleries in the museum as well so, be sure to see what’s coming up that will amaze your group in Jackson.
