AUGUSTA, GA.— The Morris Museum of Art will screen, Baeder: Pleasant Journeys and Good Eats along the Way on Sunday March 8, 2009, at 2:00 p.m. in the museum’s auditorium.

“We are very pleased to host this special screening of Pleasant Journeys… For one thing, it’s only the second time it’s been shown in public; for another, it draws attention to this new film on John Baeder, an internationally renowned artist,” states Kevin Grogan, Director of the Morris Museum of Art and one of the executive producers of the film. “The film tells the story of a man whose passionate interest in diners has led him to become the leading chronicler of a uniquely American form of roadside architecture. John’s role as an historic preservationist sets him apart from his peers and identifies him as unique among contemporary realists.”

Production of the film was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Watson-Brown Foundation of Thomson, Georgia. Produced by Film House, the DVD includes the twenty-nine minute film Pleasant Journeys and Good Eats along the Way that was created in association with the Morris Museum of Art. The film includes interviews with, among others, former NEA chairman Bill Ivey; prominent collectors Alice Zimmerman, Howard Stringer, and Jewel and Barry Coburn; art historian Robert Mode; artist Marilyn Murphy, photographer Jim McGuire, museum directors Lois Riggins-Ezzell and Kevin Grogan; writer Dan Prince; and singer/songwriters Pat Alger, Kent Blazy, Fred Koller, Dave Pomeroy, and Guy Clark. Also included on the DVD is a photo portfolio of 275 images tracing every stage of Baeder’s remarkable career.

Baeder: Pleasant Journeys and Good Eats along the Way begins at 2:00 p.m. in the Morris Museum auditorium on Sunday, March 8. A conversation with John Baeder will follow the screening; and that will be followed by a DVD and book signing. Both the DVD and book, Pleasant Journeys and Good Eats along the Way: The Paintings of John Baeder (University Press of Mississippi), are available through the Morris Museum of Art store (
