THE DO GOOD FUND
A public collection of contemporary photography from the American South.
A Visual Narrative of the ever-changing American South
Troy University’s International Arts Center was established in 2016 and houses the Fred “Nall” Hollis Museum, which features an extensive collection of Nall’s works from the 1960s to the present. Alabama Art: Inside Out presents portraits from Nall’s Alabama art series, alongside works from the depicted artists. Two of The Do Good Fund’s William Christenberry photographs are included in this eclectic exhibition.
Mark Steinmetz Looking South, Photographs from the Do Good Fund, is an elegant and quiet collection of black-and-white photographs “drawn from the artist’s decades-long career photographing the southeastern United States, primarily in Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi.”
The exhibit is open by appointment and for Click! Photography Festival programming events.
In Montgomery, 40-50 images of food and shelter will be displayed at the Museum. The themes of food and shelter apply to everyone, and photographs based on these themes help illustrate the wide range of lifestyles in the South. A goal of this collaboration is to look at contemporary Southern photographs from the perspective of those essential necessities of life that are pictured in diverse ways in The Do Good Fund collection.
In collaboration with The Montgomery Museum of Fine Art, MACOA will display a selection of photographs from The Do Good Fund that address food insecurity, homelessness, affordable housing, and related concerns.
