High to Transfer Art and Books to the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia
ATLANTA, GA.- The High Museum of Art recently transferred 21 works by 14 Georgia artists from its collection to The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MOCA GA). In addition, the High has transferred more than 700 duplicate publications from its archives to a new reference library currently under development by MOCA GA. The publications focus on modern and contemporary art and art from around the world. Scholars, curators, art historians, educators, artists and the public will have access to this new library.

“The High is delighted to now include MOCA GA in our repertoire of international and regional collaborations,” said David Brenneman, the High’s Director of Collections and Exhibitions. “Through the transfer of these works to MOCA GA, whose mission celebrates the contemporary art of Georgia, we are excited that Atlanta and regional communities will have greater access to view and study these artists and their work.”

“This collaboration between MOCA GA and the High is significant and an important step for the arts,” said Annette Cone-Skelton, MOCA GA’s President/CEO/Director. “These new additions will fill in some major gaps for our collection, especially works by Lamar Dodd, Ben Shute, Gladene Tucker, Shirley Bolton and Ferdinand Warren. The donated publications from the High will be housed in the library of our Education/Resource Center and will join others donated by artists and collectors including Ruth Laxson and the Estate of Genevieve Arnold.”

All works were chosen by Annette Cone-Skelton in conjunction with High. The transferred works are:

Shirley Bolton, Silent Strings (Jazz Series), 1974 • Santo Bruno, Small Function, 1977 • Larry Connaster, Untitled, 1969 • Herbert Lee Creecy, Jr., Study, 1967, and Study, 1967 • Lamar Dodd, Wind on the Coast, 1941; Sketch for Wind on the Coast, 1944; The White Door, 1953; and At the Foot of the Blackland • James McRae, Untitled, 1966 • Charles Mitchell, Prometheus Bringing Fire Down to the Earth • Jarvin Parks, Homage to the Four Arts • Robert Stockton Rogers, A View of Taxco, Mexico • Joseph Schwarz, Funeral • Benjamin Edgar Shute, Compote with Grapes • Howard Thomas, Reidsville, 1943; White House and Chickens, 1946; Get with Red, 1962 • Gladene Tucker, Untitled, 1961 • Ferdinand Warren, Haystacks and Corn; Garden Bouquet, 1952

Highlights include work by Lamar Dodd, who trained in New York and went on to become one of the most well-known twentieth-century Southern artists. Dodd’s artistic style follows the tradition of Thomas Hart Benton, and he was a faculty member at the University of Georgia. Artist Ferdinand Warren began his career creating war bond posters during World War II. After the war he continued his career as a commercial artist and became a faculty member at Agnes Scott College. Herbert Lee Creecy, Jr. was an abstract expressionist painter. Several of his works are owned by the Whitney Museum of American Art.
