Please join us for our Annual Membership Appreciation Dinner

Monday, February 26, 5:30 – 7:30

at the Darien United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall

201 Franklin St. (behind Old City Hall).

This is a great time to meet fellow artists and those who support us!

MENU:  We will be providing a variety of soups and cornbread.  Please bring a salad or dessert if you are so inclined.

FUN & GAMES:  Bring a photo of yourself (no older than age 5, please) in an envelope and don’t show it to anyone except our “official”.  It will be a fun way to see each other without our “age filters”, and maybe get to know each other a little better!

We know you love TRIVIA!  Brush up on your MAA knowledge to win a prize.

ANNUAL MEETING:  It’s a requirement, but we will try to make it short! All officers and board members are keeping their positions this year, but a new budget will be presented.  

*If you are interested in joining our board for 2025, please let us know!

THE KIT JONES historical vessel is back home and next to the Old Jail Art Center, completing its long journey from deteriorating in a Biloxi shipyard! Look for a permanent exhibit to be housed upstairs in the Old Jail, overlooking the Kit.  To help fund this exciting undertaking (which is already proving to be a great draw to Darien and the Old Jail Art Center), FRIENDS OF THE KIT JONES (a non-profit) is selling personalized bricks to pave the area surrounding her. Visit to find out how you can be immortalized while helping preserve a part of McIntosh history.  Commemorative 11×17 posters and postcards are also available to benefit the Kit Jones and MAA.
