Georgia Museum of Art adds Parker Curator of Russian Art
Wednesday, February 22, 2017
Following several high-profile exhibitions of Russian art, the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia has received a gift from William Parker to establish the position of Parker Curator of Russian Art. The position has been filled by Asen Kirin, professor of art history at UGA’s Lamar Dodd School of Art. Kirin will continue to teach at the art school, but he will also devote time to researching the museum’s growing collection of Russian art, publishing the results and developing special exhibitions, lectures, symposia and other educational events
Partial support for the exhibitions and programs at the Georgia Museum of Art is provided by the Georgia Council for the Arts through the appropriations of the Georgia General Assembly. The Georgia Council for the Arts also receives support from its partner agency, the National Endowment for the Arts. Individuals, foundations and corporations provide additional museum support through their gifts to the University of Georgia Foundation. The Georgia Museum of Art is located in the Performing and Visual Arts Complex on the East Campus of the University of Georgia. The address is 90 Carlton Street, University of Georgia, Athens, Ga. 30602-1502. For more information, including hours, see http://www.georgiamuseum.org or call 706-542-4662.
