Walk of Fame
The excitement begins before you even walk through our doors.
Follow our Hollywood-style Walk of Fame from the MSU Riley Center all the way to the entrance of The MAX.
Count the stars and see how many of your favorite artists, writers, and performers you can spot along the way.
Since unveiling our Walk of Fame in 2009, legends like Jimmie Rodgers, Sela Ward, B. B. King, Marty Stuart, William Faulkner, Morgan Freeman, Walter Anderson, Mac McAnally, Hartley Peavey, Elvis Presley, Tennessee Williams, and others have been honored with a star. New Walk of Fame stars are added every year.
In 2017, the Walk of Fame unveiled stars for John Grisham, Jim Henson, Robert Johnson, Leontyne Price, Muddy Waters, and Richard Wright.
