Southern Soul & Song

Southern Soul and Song

For more than fifteen years, the Morris Museum of Art’s Budweiser True Music Southern Soul & Song concert series has featured icons and rising stars in bluegrass, country, roots, blues, Americana, gospel, and jazz music—everyone from Doc Watson and Del McCoury to Pam Tillis and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. 

Held at the historic Imperial Theatre, this series features one concert a month for six months (September–February) and attracts thousands annually from across the area and beyond.

Annual Fund

Your generous support of the Morris Museum of Art’s annual fund, in addition to your annual membership dues, assures the continued growth of the museum's collections, endowment, and its Center for the Study of Southern Art, as well as the support of its public and educational programs and a variety of special projects. Your support will enrich your life and the lives of your children, grandchildren, and friends for years to come.

Planned Giving


A donation to the Morris Museum of Art is a meaningful way to remember and honor friends and loved ones and a wonderful way to support the Morris Museum's effort to preserve and enhance the rich cultural legacy of the South. These thoughtful gifts routinely go into the Acquisitions Fund to be applied to the purchase of a work of art for the museum's permanent collection, but you may designate them for other purposes as well. Please contact Kevin Grogan at the Morris Museum of Art.


By setting up a planned gift or making a bequest to the Morris Museum of Art, you will assure, through your generosity, that the museum will continue to provide future generations with enrichment and enjoyment. Consult with your legal and financial advisors to assure that the terms and conditions of your gift will best suit your needs. Please contact Kevin Grogan at the Morris Museum of Art.
