This exhibition will be on display from May 4 through August 22, 2017.

For thirty-two years Memphis College of Art has followed in the footsteps of Walter Anderson and journeyed to Horn Island in search of inspiration. Each summer the college leads a group of students, faculty, alumni, and other artists out to the island for two weeks. The group camps primitively on the barrier island, exploring, creating artwork, and gleaning inspiration from the wild and windswept spit of land. This exhibition consists of fifty-seven works from the participants of Horn Island Trips 31 and 32. We invite you to join the Islanders and to experience Horn Island through their eyes.
