- about crayon quilts from the Vaiden Quilters Guild,
- about Mississippi John Hurt through an exhibit from the Mississippi John Hurt Museum,
- about Mississippi through interactive activities on a giant 16 by 20 foot floor map from the Mississippi Geographic Alliance based at Ole Miss.
All of these activities are free.
