Camp QuiddLit is a kid's summer camp run by the Department of English (with a ilttle help from the official Southern Miss Quiddicth Team!) Each year, the kids write short stories which are compiled into a book by the camp's leaders. This year's book, Wonderlands, was designed by Paige Gray and Mary Stephens, graduate students in the English Department.
This anniversary exhibition presents a remarkable collection of children's artwork created in response to the ravages of Hurricane Katrina. In 2005-2006 when these works were made, the young Mississippi artists were in grades K-5 and from Forrest, Harrison, Jackson, Jones, Lamar, and Pearl River counties.
The 63 vivid and poignant pieces in this USM art collection stem from the initial Drawing on Katrina show of over 300 works first exhibited in the summer of 2006 at the USM Museum of Art. Curators for the Drawing on Katrina project include USM professors Janet Gorzegno and Mark Rigsby.
This exhibition is available for loan to qualified venues. For details, please contact email@example.com.

The Telling Project works to deepen our understanding of the military and veterans’ experience. Greater understanding fosters receptivity, easing veterans’ transitions back to civil society, and allowing communities to benefit from the skills and experience they bring with them. Through this understanding, a community deepens its connection to its veterans, itself, and its place in the nation and the world.
