We're Celebrating the Arts!
The arts play an important role in allowing our community to understand and preserve its cultural heritage. All communities have traditions and history individual to them, and the arts are reflective of a community's past. Cultural awareness and cultural preservation also plays an important role in community development. Art events attract visitors and brings customers into local businesses, restaurants and hotels.
With this in mind, the Cultural Affairs Department is proud to introduce "Celebrating the Arts", a monthly showcase of our diverse art community. On October 1, 2013, the website began highlighting local artists and musicians, and other events such as concerts, plays and festivals.
If there is an event that you would like to see featured in Celebrating the Arts, please contact Paula Fairconnetue at 228-466-5458. Check out this months featured artist, Sylvia Langlinais. Some of Ms. Langlinais's art collection is on exhibit during the month of March, on the second floor of Bay St. Louis City Hall which is located at 688 Hwy. 90. City hall is open 8am until 5pm, Monday through Friday.
