Art Talk at LRMA

February 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Art Talk at LRMA for February will be provided by Nash Nunnery, author of Magnolia Gridiron Cathedrals.

A proud native of the Mississippi Delta, freelance writer Nash Nunnery has tapped into his love of vintage high school football fields in his home state for his first book, Magnolia Gridiron Cathedrals. The hardback coffee table volume includes 47 essays written by Nunnery about classic stadiums in towns big and small that he found worthy of being called hallowed ground. Laurel’s famously iconic Watkins Stadium “Between the Bricks” is one of the fields featured. Join us as Nash discusses his debut book, which has been ranked in the top 5 of the Jackson Clarion-Ledger’s “Mississippi’s Top Reads”.


The art TALK programs are free and open to the public.
No reservations required. Bring a lunch – beverages and desserts provided!
The art TALK program is sponsored by West Quality Foods.

The City of Laurel, established as a lumber town in 1882, is conveniently situated approximately two hours from larger destination cities such as Jackson, Biloxi, New Orleans, and Mobile. In recent years, the city has become a destination all its own thanks, in part, to its starring role in HGTV’s popular “Hometown” series. As Laurel, and interest in it, continues to grow, we are committed to providing the resources necessary to help all of our residents and businesses reach their full potential.
