    This periodically rotating exhibition of Belleek porcelain comprises masterworks from the comprehensive and noted collection of Linda N. Beard. The roots of Belleek porcelain production lay in the lands of John Caldwell Bloomfield, who in 1849 had a geologic survey of his property in the village of Belleek, County Fermanagh, in what would later become Northern Ireland, that revealed rich deposits of minerals.

  6. Permanent Collection

    Permanent Collection

    Thirteen galleries house a large portion of the Georgia Museum of Art's permanent collection, including many of the 100 American paintings that made up Alfred Heber Holbrook's founding gift. Eight of these recently received a major facelift, with new arrangements, paint colors and wall text to explain and educate.

Aralee Strange Lecture: Shirley Brice Heath

5:30 – 6:30 pm

Dr. Heath holds the Marjorie Bailey Professorship in English and Dramatic Literature and her work focuses on the ways in which long-term engagement with art can drive the linguistic and cognitive development of adolescents. Her talk, titled “The Arts as Brick and Mortar of Community Building,” will draw from national and international contexts in which the arts are building community togetherness, communication and, sometimes, solace and comfort. This program is made possible by the Aralee Strange Fund for Art and Poetry.
