Serendipity 2018

Mississippi State Hospital will host the 28th annual Serendipity art show and silent auction on Thursday, Sept. 6. All of the work in this unique show is created by MSH patients and Jaquith Nursing Home residents who are taking part in the hospital’s Art Services program. This year’s show will open at 11:30 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. in the Building 71 Conference Center on the MSH campus. Visitors are welcome, and several hundred typically attend the show over the course of the day. The pieces are on display and up for auction will include paintings in various mediums, crayon batik, pencil drawings and ceramics. Bidders in the silent auction write their name, number and bid down next to a piece in which they are interested. Serious bidders who attend Serendipity every year have learned to be there at closing time to ensure they have the highest bid on the artwork they want.
