Madison Tea Room hosts Mardi Gras Celebrations in Madison

 

Elaborate costumes and ornate masks dominated the Madison Tea Room and Gardens Saturday evening during the Steffen Thomas Museum’s first-ever gala in honor of Mardi Gras, also called Fat Tuesday. Mardi Gras is observed the day before Ash Wednesday as the final hurrah of indulgence before the austerity of the Lenten season begins.

 

The museum held the gala to raise funds for its arts outreach projects that benefit students from elementary school through college, which have been provided by the museum since 2001. In the 2016-17 school year alone, nearly 1,000 students participated in one of the three free programs the museum offers.

Georgia boasts a respectable literary influence. Among the authors who call the Peach State home, we can claim Flannery O’Connor, Margaret Mitchell, Alice Walker and many others. Novels set in Georgia range from Jean Toomer’s majestic exercise in American modernism “Cane” (1923) to Robert Kirkman’s enduringly popular graphic novel “The Walking Dead” (2003-present).
