Last few days for "Stone and Steel"

If you haven't yet seen our exhibition "Stone and Steel: Small Works by Beverly Pepper," or if you have seen it and keep meaning to come back, you only have a few more days. The exhibition consists of small-scale sculptures in stone, Corten steel and other materials by the famed female sculptor, whose "Ascension" now stands at the entrance to the museum. The galleries in which it appears make use of natural light to bring out the sensory nature of the media. "Stone and Steel" has been sponsored by Helen C. Griffith, Mr. D. Jack Sawyer Jr. and Dr. William E. Torres, the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, the W. Newton Morris Charitable Foundation and the Friends of the Georgia Museum of Art. It closes Sunday, July 31.

Opening next in those galleries is "Introduction to the Centers," a two-part exhibition designed to introduce the public to the museum's four Study Centers in the Humanities, a crucial part of our mission that is nonetheless difficult to explain in a few words. Come join us in a few weeks to find out more about the Study Centers.
