Ogden Museum of Southern Art:
Exhibition and PROGRAMMING highlights
Inspired by Eudora Welty's observation that “one place understood helps us understand all places better," curators Amy Miller of Atlanta Celebrates Photography and The Do Good Fund founder, Alan Rothschild, selected photographs for One Place Understood that, taken together, illustrate a place that is “The South:” a place on the map, an environment, and stories that are simultaneously simple and complex. Universally comprehended, and yet deeply personal, these images provide an opportunity for viewers to understand the South, and perhaps all places, better.
Curated by Kenny Gray for the Rankin Arts Photography Center and as a part of Artbeat 2018, Columbus Georgia's annual celebration of arts in the community, this exhibition features 37 portraits from The Do Good Fund Collection.
The Ogden Museum is hosting a panel of selected photographers, scholars, and curators for a discussion moderated by Dr. Jim Cobb, the B. Phinizy Spalding Professor of History Emeritus at The University of Georgia. Panelists will discuss the Ogden Museum’s latest photography exhibition One Place Understood: Photographs from The Do Good Fund Collection, Southern photography, and the issues facing the American South and photography post World War II.
This panel is being supported by The Wilson Center, University of Georgia and The Do Good Fund, Inc.
Free and open to the public.
In conjunction with One Place Understood: Photographs from The Do Good Fund Collection and intended for absolute beginners, this black-and-white workshop for adults will cover a brief history of photography, the mechanics of the SLR camera, all automatic settings and composition 101.
