GMOA Receives SEMC Awards!
Last week, the Georgia Museum of Art won nine awards at the Southeastern Museums Conference annual meeting in Baton Rouge, La. This unprecedented number of honors included an Award of Excellence for the exhibition “Lord Love You: Works by R.A. Miller from the Mullis Collection,” as well as a number of other publications, some of which were also related to the exhibition.
GMOA received a Gold in the Books and Catalogues category for its hardcover “Lord Love You” exhibition catalogue. Golds were also awarded for the exhibition’s rack card and poster, and the opening reception invitation received an Honorable Mention.
Other publication awards included a Silver for “The South in Black and White: The Graphic Works of James E. Routh Jr., 1939–1946” and an Honorable Mention for the “Corpus of Early Italian Paintings in the North American Public Collections: The South.” An Honorable Mention was also given to the museum’s 2008-2009 Annual Report.
