The Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts opened in March 2003 and quickly became the region’s premier entertainment venue, bringing Broadway touring shows, major music stars, princes, U.S. Supreme Court justices, children’s shows, university events and a presidential debate to the Ole Miss campus. The center celebrates its 20th anniversary with a gala show on March 25. Photo by Photo by Kevin Bain/Ole Miss Digital Imaging Services
