Jack Kyle, who organized four highly successful international art exhibitions in Jackson — Palaces of St. Petersburg: Russian Imperial Style; Splendors of Versailles; The Majesty of Spain: Royal Collections from the Museo del Prado & Patrimonio Nacional; and The Glory of Baroque Dresden — has a plan for a permanent museum focusing on international art in downtown Vicksburg.

The four international exhibitions in Jackson, opening between 1996 and 2004, attracted an estimated 1.3 million visitors and generated nearly $175 million in economic impact.
