December 7, 2014- January 25, 2015
This beautiful exhibition features paintings from the collection of Wesleyan College in Macon. The core of the collection was donated to the college during the 1930s through 1950s by distinguished painter and Wesleyan alumna, Helena Eastman Ogden Campbell, and by friends in her New York and European artistic milieu.
Troublemakers & Trailblazers
Feburary 22, 2015 – February 7, 2016
This exhibition will present the more colorful characters of the Chattahoochee Valley, people who were criticized or ostracized for being outside the mainstream or going against dominant power structures. Race, class, gender, and sexuality will be topics of discussion, as well as what it means to “do the right thing.” An overarching theme will be how we perceive “trouble” and how these troublemakers are sometimes, but not always, seen differently through the long lens of history.
