Georgia Museum of Art Grand Reopening

Like all Georgians, we at UGA Press are looking forward to our first peek at the reopened Georgia Museum of Art after eleven months of construction on its Phase II expansion. UGA Press is proud to partner with the museum in distributing ONE HUNDRED AMERICAN PAINTINGS by Paul A. Manoguerra to coincide with the week of events and festivities marking the reopening. With entries by Janice Simon, Lynn Boland, and William U. Eiland, the catalogue features one hundred significant American paintings drawn from the museum’s collection of more than 8,000 art objects that, for the first time, will be on continual display in the building’s new permanent-collection galleries. We are also distributing TRACING VISION, which showcases modern drawings from the museum's permanent collection.

Among the opening events is a Friends of the GMOA reception on Sunday, January 30, from 1:00–5:00 p.m., and the opening of the museum to public on Monday, January 31, from 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. A complete schedule can be found at the museum's website.
