GMOA Exhibition Travels to Hartsfield-Jackson Airport

Part of the Airport Art Program, Department of Aviation, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, “All Creatures Great and Small,” a special exhibition from the Georgia Museum of Art’s permanent collection and the collection of Carl Mullis, features works of art depicting animals created by self-taught American artists. Paintings, sculptures and mixed-media creations by such folk masters as Howard Finster and Mose Tolliver and by such outstanding but relatively unheralded contemporary artists as Jim Lewis and Ted Gordon will soon be on display in the Atlanta airport’s T gates. The majority of artists featured have spent their lives in the South, including the following artists from Georgia: Michael Crocker, Finster, Willie Jinks, R.A. Miller and O.L. Samuels. Watch here for news on when the exhibition will be open.
