GMOA exhibitions

Even during the upcoming holiday break on campus, the Georgia Museum of Art remains open and a great place to take the kids or visiting family - or even just to catch up on great exhibitions that you've missed in recent months.

Three special exhibitions will stretch just into the New Year, each ending January 5, and would be a worthwhile treat over the holidays:

The Crossroads of Memory: Carroll Cloar and the American South

Exuberance of Meaning: The Art Patronage of Catherine the Great (1762–1796)

L’objet en mouvement: Early Abstract Film

In addition, the Museum will have its Third Thursday on December 19, an event devoted to art in the evening hours, on the third Thursday of every month featuring artwork at the Georgia Museum of Art, the Lamar Dodd School of Art, Lyndon House Arts Center, Glass Cube & Gallery@Hotel Indigo-Athens, Ciné and ATHICA.

On top of that, if you aren't familiar with the museum's extraordinarily fine permanent collection, you owe yourself an hour or two spent discovering the fine works that reside right in our community. Amidst the treasures, you will even find work by Franklin College faculty present and past, including by Lamar Dodd himself.

See you at the museum.
