People of all ages, races, religions and socio-economic backgrounds come together every year for Mobile’s Mardi Gras celebration.

The exhibition, which marks the art museum’s 50th anniversary, kicks off with a Golden Gala Birthday Bash fundraiser Thursday (Nov. 6) evening, then opens to the public this weekend (Nov. 8-9) with a free Family Festival on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The exhibition will continue through May 3.
