A place to gather.
Make yourself at home. Nearly half of The MAX is devoted to gathering, performing, and creating. Two art studios, a recording studio, and numerous indoor and outdoor spaces are designed for schools, civic clubs, professionals and families to host special programs and events. And on any visit, our open rooftop terrace invites you to sit down, catch up with friends and take in the view.
Like the people we honor, The MAX stands out from the crowd. A modern silhouette and large glass windows make The MAX an architectural icon in the historic backdrop of downtown Meridian, Mississippi. The 60,000 square-foot-space was designed as a joint effort by LPK Architects of Meridian and Canizaro Cawthon Davis.
There’s no mistaking our identity. Our logo is inspired by our distinctive architecture. At first glance, it spells out the initials of our name, the Mississippi Arts + Entertainment Experience. But can you also spot our nickname, The MAX? If you look closely, you’ll find every letter. The Mississippi-based firm GodwinGroup developed the design. Keep an eye out for it.
