Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s School of Visual and Performing Arts at the Perkinston Campus is hosting Taco’bout Art Fall Student Showcase on November 16 at Malone Hall on the Perkinston Campus. The event includes performances by the MGCCC Jazz Band, Perkettes, Jazz Dance Class Students, and Mississippi Sound, and an exhibit of the works by MGCCC visual art students. The event, which begins at 5:30 p.m., is free and open to the public.
In a celebration of Latin culture, audience members will have the opportunity to indulge in food from south of the border as they enjoy student performances and artwork. A formal gallery talk will provide more information about the artwork. At 6:30 p.m., the MGCCC Jazz Band, Perkettes, and Mississippi Sound members will present a fun concert that will reflect and celebrate art derived from Hispanic cultures.
Previously known as the Tri-Art-A-Thon, the annual Student Arts Showcase is a collaborative event that allows students to display their artistic talents. For many of these students, art has played an important role and been a therapeutic tool throughout the trialing time of Covid-19. This event provides audience members an artistic escape from the harshness of our current reality, allowing them the opportunity to experience the creativity and light these students have discovered during the pandemic.
