A new exhibit is coming to the Two Mississippi Museums in Jackson on May 7 called The World of Marty Stuart, featuring hundreds of never-before-seen items that Stuart has collected from musicians like Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, and Johnny Cash.
Other showcased items include guitars from Merle Haggard and Pops Staples, costumes from Port Wagoner, some of Stuart’s own personal items, and more.
The unveiling of the exhibit will take place along with the inaugural Mississippi Makers Fest, a free event for the public that will feature live music, food, and arts on the museum grounds.
Musicians that will perform at the all-day festival will include North Mississippi Allstars, Mr. Sipp, Framing the Red, Chapel Hart, the Chad Wesley Band, 5th Child, and more.
“We are thrilled to host The World of Marty Stuart exhibit and can’t think of a better way to kick it off than with the Mississippi Makers Fest,” Pamela Junior, director of the Two Mississippi Museums, said. “Marty represents what it means to be a creative and hardworking Mississippian, and that’s what this festival will celebrate. We have a phenomenal musical lineup and several incredible food and art vendors from across the state.”
