The Tunica River Park and Museum opened its new gallery to the public on April 25 with the “Delta Artists” exhibit. The exhibit features the art of Mississippi Delta natives and residents and takes a special perspective on the 2011 flood’s effect on the area. Pat Brown, co-owner of T. Clifton Art, said she selected a diverse range of artists and art for the exhibit. “In looking at the richness of all the Delta artists, we wanted visitors to see different mediums and styles,” said Brown. “Each of the artist’s area of emphasis truly epitomizes the diversity of the region.”

The Tunica RiverPark, which was named a 2011 Rand McNally Best of the Road winner, features the Mississippi River Museum, riverboat cruises, nature trail, 48-foot river overlook and gift shop. For more information, visit
