L.V. Hull (1942–2008) was an irrepressible artist who spent decades transforming her home in Kosciusko, Mississippi, into a creative wonderland that attracted visitors from around the world. Much of her artwork and personal belongings were saved after her death and recently conserved by the Kohler Foundation. The collection was then gifted to a new steward organization, the Arts Foundation of Kosciusko. The Arts Foundation, in partnership with the Estate of L.V. Hull and the Keysmith Foundation, is developing a new arts campus in Kosciusko called the L.V. Hull Legacy Center. The Center will host rotating exhibitions and offer free community programming. The Legacy Center campus will also include Hull’s original home, the L.V. Hull Home & Studio, which is currently stewarded by the Keysmith Foundation. The home was recently named to the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s list of the 11 Most Endangered Historic Places in the United States. 


The Arts Foundation of Kosciusko, Inc. (AFK) is a diverse group of local leaders dedicated to preserving and activating the legacy of artist L.V. Hull.
