ATHENS, GA.- The Georgia Museum of Art (GMOA) is organizing “University of Georgia Turns 225,” an exhibition beginning March 19, 2010, that will celebrate UGA’s 225th anniversary.

The exhibition will display visual art that reflects both the history and the current state of UGA and its campus life. Paintings by Lamar Dodd, the founder of the University’s art school, will be on display, including “The Arch” (1939) and “North Campus,” as will works by such other notable artists as George Cooke, Charles Frederick Naegle and Howard Thomas.

Current art students and professors, including those in the department of ceramics, will also have a role in the anniversary exhibition. The combination of historic and recent objects reflects the purpose of the anniversary, which is to honor the past and the present while looking to the future.

The exhibition will take place from March 19 to April 30 in the galleries of the Visual Arts Building on Jackson Street, which is also home to the temporary offices of the museum while it undergoes expansion and renovation.
