Dialogue in Diversity series
The Office of Institutional Diversity in partnership with the Georgia Museum of Art will host the lunchtime discussion “Art, History and Inclusion” on Oct. 12 at 12:30 p.m. in the Georgia Museum of Art’s educational center.
Valerie Babb, director of the Institute for African American Studies, and Paul Manoguerra, chief curator of the Georgia Museum of Art, will lead a discussion about the four George Beattie agricultural murals on display at the art museum.
The murals were painted in 1956 and are a part of a series of eight murals that hung at the Department of Agriculture until 2011.
The four on display at the museum address the state’s history of agriculture, beginning with a representation of the American Indians who originally lived in the region and including two that address slavery.
Lunch will be provided to those who register to rsvpOID@uga.edu with their name and department. The series is free, and spaces will be filled on a first-come basis.
