Georgia Council for the Arts in partnership with the Georgia Tourism Division and the Georgia Humanities Council is pleased to announce the availability of a traveling exhibit from Georgia’s State Art Collection. The exhibit highlights the diversity of styles, media and techniques in the Collection, as well as work from some of Georgia’s iconic artists. The deadline to apply is June 20, 2013
For the first time in decades, a curated exhibit of selected pieces from the Collection is available to Georgia communities. A maximum of ten communities will be selected through a competitive application process. The exhibit will hang for four weeks in each community. The exhibit is intended to serve as a springboard for additional arts and culture activities that serve to celebrate and increase awareness for the local cultural community and increase tourism.
In an effort to inspire and inform Georgian’s about the power, purpose and necessity of art, 28 of the most significant pieces from the expansive 600+ piece state collection have been selected to represent and celebrate the long history of art and culture in Georgia. Included in the exhibit will be original works by renowned Georgia artists such as Benny Andrews, Lucinda Bunnen, Herbert Creecy, Howard Finster, Ruth Laxson, and Nellie Mae Rowe. The exhibition is comprised solely of hanging works and will require approximately 600 square feet of wall space.
