L.V. Hull Home and Studio

L.V. Hull Home and Studio

L.V. Hull (1942–2008) was an American assemblage artist. She was born in 1942 in McAdams, Mississippi. She spent many years in Kosciusko, Mississippi. A self-taught artist, she began painting and assembling objects in her home and garden in 1975. Among the objects assembled are painted hubcaps, shoes and signs. L.V. Hull died in 2008.

After her death attempts were made to preserve the site and the objects, but despite a grant from the American Folklore Society, involvement of the Mississippi Arts Commission, and the formation of The Friends of L.V. the project was not a success. The house was in disrepair and ownership was questionable. In the process of sorting out ownership, the house fell into further disrepair. The Friends of L.V. took photographs to document how the house and garden appeared when Hull was alive and many of the art objects were moved to Kosciusko city hall.

The L.V. Hull Home and Studio was placed on the National Trust for Historic Preservation's America's 11 Most Endangered List in 2023.
