JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Atmos Energy is donating $25,000 each to the Grammy Museum Mississippi and the Mississippi Arts & Entertainment Center.

The announcement came Monday from Atmos’ Mississippi president David Gates.

The 28,000-square-foot Grammy museum is under construction in Cleveland on land that used to belong to Delta State University’s golf course. It’s budgeted to cost $18 million and scheduled to open in fall. Federal, state and local government funds, as well as private donations, are paying for it.

The 58,500-square-foot Meridian arts center is scheduled to open in 2017 - the same year Mississippi will celebrate its bicentennial.

The building will have exhibition space, a Hall of Fame and a Walk of Fame, broadcast studio, art studio, multi-purpose room, outdoor stage and a courtyard which can also be used for programs.
