Retention of two staff members and the creation of a new position at WAMA in Ocean Springs, Mississippi to develop humanities programming through digital channels.

"Southern Art/Wider World" is a digital humanities project empowering dialogue between scholars and communities around historical and cultural themes present in WAMA’s collection. Building upon more than three decades of scholarship investigating the life and work of artist Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965), the project creates a digital framework connecting the Southern land to American identity through live programs, distance learning, and cultural capacity-building. The project delivers free humanities engagement through three digital vehicles: 1) Live-streamed programs featuring humanities scholars; 2) A continuing education course; and 3) A mobile app exploring humanities themes and content through virtual museum tours and experiences. An additional outcome is to share processes with other MS cultural organizations to encourage digital capacity-building statewide.

The Walter Anderson Museum in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, preserves the art of Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965), known for his depictions of the plants, animals, and people of the Gulf Coast. The museum also collects the work of his brothers, Peter Anderson (1901-1984), master potter and founder of Shearwater Pottery; and James McConnell Anderson (1907-1998), noted painter and ceramic artist. The 800 items in the permanent collection include watercolors, drawings, oils, block prints, ceramics, and carvings by the three Anderson brothers. The rain and sea spray during Hurricane Katrina caused damage to the museum's climate control system, and high relative humidity and temperatures threatened the collection.
