“Meet at the Bell Tower”

The Mississippi School of the Arts Foundation, Inc. is proud to present a signed, limited edition, numbered print from the Wyatt Waters Gallery. The print features the bell tower on the campus of Mississippi School of the Arts (formerly Whitworth College), dating back to the 1920’s. Also shown is Cooper Hall, a relic of Whitworth College and the last of the campus’ landmarks waiting to be restored. To the right is Johnson Institute. Constructed in 1883, Johnson currently houses the majority of arts and academic classrooms at MSA. The courtyard view was special during the days of Whitworth, and MSA carries the tradition to this day with seniors ringing bell at the end of their high school career.
