Georgia’s Printmakers Georgia’s legislature, in making the Georgia Museum of Art the state’s official art museum by proclamation in 1982, reaffirmed the beliefs and wishes of our founder, Alfred Heber Holbrook, who hoped following generations of staffs and patrons would expand our educational and exhibition services to all the people of the state. This exhibition continues that tradition of bringing art to the people, of advancing our native artists, and of developing, on the grass roots levels, programs in arts education and teaching. If icing is needed for this cake, the project allows us to form a partnership with the Lyndon House Arts Center in Athens and its director, whom we acknowledge with gratitude for her helping us to bring to fruition, yet again, our founder’s mandate.
