The Northeast Mississippi Art Association was organized in 1967. The organization seeks to promote the study of art and make art an integral part of Northeast Mississippi. The club sponsors an art contest each spring and awards an art scholarship each fall to an art student at either ICC or Northeast Community College. The club meets the third Monday at 5:30 at Our Artworks (corner of Clayton and Jackson). Those interested are always welcome.
