Whether you want to get lost in an art museum or explore a quirky seaside gallery, The Secret Coast is the perfect place to indulge your inner art-enthusiast. One of our favorite ways to spend an art-filled day on the Coast is traveling from town to town and viewing the multitude of public art installations and murals scattered around our region.

From large-scale murals in the middle of downtowns to beach-front sculptures, Coastal Mississippi is brimming with art of all kinds – perfect for a day of picture taking, exploring and getting in touch with your artsy side. Luckily, we’ve created a list of all the best public art spots, so read on for our Official Guide to Coastal Mississippi’s Public Art Installations.
