The American Soldier is a dramatic exhibition of 116 wall-to-wall photographs capturing the essence of American soldiering for more than 150 years.

GULFPORT - People looking for locally produced art can find it in Gulfport, but it isn't always easy. The town's art gallery, Domain, showcases local artists, and the Industrial Art Center artists often have their compact galleries open along "Artist's Alley", but come the Art Walk nights, people would often complain the street vendors didn't sell enough art.

A group called Collective Soulz, with the support of the Gulfport Merchant's Association, wants to help change all that. Organizer Mark Spence, a Gulfport local who supports the arts but stops short of calling himself an artist, explains that, for a new artist, the street fairs and festivals can overwhelm.

"They don't want to get a booth because they're going to have to get a tent, table, lights, and they may not make it," he said.
