The Utica Institute Museum
Hinds Community College – Utica Campus
Since the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Utica Institute Museum, we have had the privilege of touring, engaging, and supporting this historically amazing institute. The museum will provide educational opportunities, resources, and share the stories of the Utica Institute and surrounding.
Recently, their BackPorch Thursdays series featured our work at Sipp Culture in connection with museum Director Jean Greene. Co-Directors Carlton and Brandi Turner led the discussion with their own homegrown history in Utica and parting with a Q&A session centered mostly around sustainable agriculture practices, art, and storytelling.

Sipp Culture’s Co-Director Brandi Turner shared her thoughts around rural communities holding their futures through food and story. In her intro, she discusses Equitable Food Futures: Eat, Meet and Greet at the State Arts Conference: The BIPOC Artists Movement hosted by the Mississippi Arts Commission (MAC).
“In order to impact the change and shift BIPOC artists desire, it is important for BIPOC artists’ voices to be centered in the places, spaces, conversations and decisions that directly impact their communities. It is equally important for these voices to be amplified and supported, while gaining access to resources that would advance the BIPOC agenda.” –Brandi Turner
