September 3 - 7, 2019

A week dedicated to celebrating the integral role that art plays in our lives.

Art creates a sense of place, beautification of public areas, offers community expression and dialogue, and enhances the quality of life for Meridian residents and visitors.

The Arts can be used as a conduit for exchanging ideas, connecting with one another, finding common ground, and can help to strengthen Meridian’s communities and families.

Our goal for Meridian Art Week is to encourage downtown businesses and guests to take part in the arts through a number of various activities offered throughout the week and through Art Drop, which lasts all week long.
