Step into the spotlight. Support the arts in Mississippi.


Step into the spotlight. Support the arts in Mississippi.

Although Mississippi has a rich creative legacy, students throughout our state are growing up with less exposure to the arts.

Rural and urban areas alike are in need of more resources and instructors to pass on life-changing lessons in the arts to the next generation of Mississippians.

The MAX is a place where students and visitors of all ages can come to learn the life stories of Mississippi's legends, see the rough creative process behind the polished work, and pursue their own creative interests through hands-on workshops and educational events in every area of the arts: music, dance, drama, writing, visual arts, and more.

Your support of The MAX helps accomplish our mission to showcase our legacy, honor our legends, and inspire the next generation of Mississippi artists. But its impact ripples well past our own walls: Because The MAX will steer our visitors to important sites throughout our state – from Elvis's Tupelo to B.B. King's Indianola to Jimmy Buffett's Pascagoula to Eudora Welty's Jackson to Walter Anderson's Ocean Springs and beyond – your contribution to The MAX is felt in every part of Mississippi.

Every dollar invested in The MAX sends a message that we believe the arts are important to our state and vital to our future. Help us tell the world what Mississippians are capable of, and inspire the next generation of Mississippi legends.

AmazonSmile is a simple and easy way for you to support The MAX every time you shop online – at no cost to you. When you select Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Center as your charitable organization of choice, Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of eligible AmazonSmile purchases to our organization.
