The VAA offers art-related programs and/or speakers. Throughout the year workshops in varied art disciplines are held. Competitive exhibtions of work by regional artists are hosted. Most of these events are held at the Old Constitution Firehouse Gallery located at the corner of Main and Openwood Streets


About the Firehouse

                        The VAA is fortunate to have as its headquarters one of Vicksburg's first firehouses. This building has been designated as a Mississippi Landmark by the Department of Archives and History. The Old Constitution Firehouse is believed by the Archives and History Department to be the most intact Victorian fire station in the state.

It was built in 1870 as the second house for the city's first volunteer fire company and later housed the first paid company.

  The building retains the central stall, barracks room, cupola, and bell which was used to call the volunteers.

  The presence of the fire station made the Openwood - Main Street area one of the most desirable residential districts in Vicksburg before 1876.
