The Coahoma Community College Fine Arts Department and the Rock & Blues Museum are working together for the Fall and Spring semesters on Commercial Arts and Fine Arts projects.  With the help of a $2000 grant award from the Community Foundation of NW Mississippi, the Museum will bring the Fall Semester CCC Art Major students into the Museum for inspiration for a Commercial Arts Project.  In December, the students’ work will be exhibited in the Museum and pieces will be select for commercial application in the form of posters and flyers for the a Museum festival/event.  In the Spring Semester, the Fine Arts Majors will come into the Museum for several visits to develop paintings and/or portraits based on something that inspires them in the Museum.  Their work will be displayed at a formal exhibit event at the Museum in April.

Rosalind Wilcox, Chair of the CCC Fine Arts Department, and Brad Bernard, CCC Art Instructor, along with Cindy Hudock, Museum Board Treasurer, have worked together to create this project and funding from the Community Foundation of NW Mississippi helped to make it a reality.  “We’re looking forward to having the Art Major Students visit the Museum,” said Hudock, “and this project extends the Museum’s reach out into the community.  We are excited about the final exhibit events planned for December and April, which will be open to not only the students and their families, but the entire Clarksdale community as well."
