From the Southaven Arts Council:
It is with heavy hearts that the Board of Directors of the Southaven Arts Council would like to express our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Kelly Adkins.
She never considered herself an artist, but she had more passion for the arts than anyone we have known.
She was a patron, advocate, and pillar of the arts in the region.
Kelly had many goals, but at the top of the list was the success of this organization in order create a home for the visual arts in our community.
We, as the Board, vow to continue this important work.
Kelly created the foundation. We invite you help keep Kelly’s dream alive by joining us in growing a vibrant arts community in Southaven.
Please join us on November 15, 2022 to celebrate the life of our dear friend Kelly Adkins.
