Mississippi Heritage Trust
Listen Up! Historic Preservation Conference and Heritage Awards
Ocean Springs, June 6-8
Presented by BankPlus
On June 6-8, the Mississippi Heritage Trust will host the Listen Up! Historic Preservation Conference at the Ocean Springs Community Center and Walter Anderson Museum of Art in lovely downtown Ocean Springs. Surrounded by beautifully restored murals by Walter Anderson, speakers Christian Preus with Christian Preus Landscape Architecture, Judy Steckler with the Land Trust for the Mississippi Coastal Plain, Matthew McLaughlin with the Mississippi Brewer’s Guild, David Perkes with the Gulf Coast Community Design Studio and Madison and Mark Talley with Tallstudio will demonstrate why we are only as good as our partners in efforts to bring new life to old places.
Special guest Liz Waytkus, Executive Director of Docomomo US, will help to put efforts to preserve Mississippi’s modernist masterpieces in context with the larger national movement to save the best of the recent past. Highlights of the conference include a picnic on the grounds of the Charnley-Norwood House hosted by the Mississippi Gulf Coast National Heritage Area, the 2018 Heritage Awards and a tour of some of the coast’s quirky, exuberant and oh-so-hip modernist buildings.
