Exhibitions organized by the Zuckerman Museum of Art opening on January 17 include Pedro: Menaboni’s Lost Story (Clayton Gallery, Bailey Performance Center), The Annual Art Faculty Exhibition (The Art Gallery, Sturgis Library), and The 30th Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition (Fine Arts Gallery, Wilson Building), juried by Marcia Wood, Executive Director and Owner of Marcia Wood Gallery, Atlanta. All exhibitions are located on the main campus of Kennesaw State University (1000 Chastain Road, Kennesaw, GA 30144).
The gallery walk also includes the opening of Southern Industrial Landscapes: Photographs of the Marietta Bell Bomber Plant, 1942–-1944, an exhibition of architectural photographs presented by the KSU Archives and Zuckerman Museum of Art. These historic photographs, part of the KSU Archives collection, record the development of a manufacturing plant that considerably impacted the social dynamics and economy of WWII-era Marietta, Georgia. Southern Industrial Landscapes also reflects the influence of Precisionism and the machine age on art during this era. The exhibition will be located in the Athenaeum Gallery on the 2nd floor of KSU’s Sturgis Library. We hope to see you there!
