    Introduced at The Walter Anderson Museum of Art this summer, Memphis College of Art proudly presents The Sound & The Gulf, a retrospective exhibition celebrating 34 years of artwork inspired by the wilderness landscape of Horn Island.

    For more than three decades, Memphis College of Art students have followed in the footsteps of artist Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965) as they’ve made a series of 12-day excursions by boat to Horn Island, an uninhabited barrier island off the coast of Mississippi.

    The exhibition, directly following the 35th annual Horn Island Exhibition, looks back at this impressive and inspiring journey through the eyes of these intrepid creators.
