In celebration of Mississippi’s bicentennial, trace the influence the architecture and interior furnishings of France have had on Mississippi’s decorative arts through Todd Sanders’ presentation.
Mr. Sanders, an adjunct instructor in Mississippi College’s Interior Design program, will illustrate and explain the characteristics of French furniture and architecture and relate these to examples in Mississippi. The presentation will address the styles of Louis XIV, Louis XV, Louis XVI, French provincial, Rococo revival, and Empire and Second Empire.
