In 2011, University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art showcased the collaborative work of two local artists in the exhibition “A Year on the Hill: Work by Jim Fiscus and Chris Bilheimer.” Recently, the museum received several of these works of art as a gift, and we are excited to present them anew.

The collaborative exhibition features large images. In addition to their scale, the individual prints are distinguished by various overlay treatments. All the work on this project took place on the Hill, a neighborhood in Athens, Georgia, between the end of 2009 and fall 2010. 

Fiscus is an award-winning advertising and editorial photographer whose clients include Levis, Guinness, HBO, Nike, Coca-Cola and ESPN. Bilheimer is a Grammy-nominated graphic artist who has designed packaging for R.E.M, Green Day and Nirvana, among many others. This collaboration is the result of their personal friendship and time together in Athens. 

An exhibition catalogue, designed by Bilheimer, is available for purchase.
