AMA Members Meet-Up

Bo Bartlett Center, The Do Good Fund Tours

Saturday | June 10 | 11 am-1 pm | Columbus, Ga. 

Albany Museum of Art members are invited to meet at the Bo Bartlett Center in nearby Columbus, Ga., for a private tour of the center, then visit The Do Good Fund. Afterward, participants may stay for a group lunch at Banks Food Hall.

The Bo Bartlett Center, designed by AIA award-winning architect Tom Kundig, occupies a former red-brick textile warehouse on the River Park campus of Columbus State University in downtown Columbus. It serves as an experimental learning center and cultural hub for the visual arts while offering visitors a broad range of arts experiences within the college’s arts district.

Gallery Coordinator Joshua Newbend will lead AMA members in an in-depth, energetic, and open conversation about the works on display. On view will be Facts & Figures: Contemporary Realism from the Columbus Museum, which includes works by Bartlett, Janet Fish, Burt Silverman, Wes Hempel, Jack Beal, and others.

Following the visit to the Bo Bartlett Center, members will take a trip to The Do Good Fund. On view there will be Breaking News: Ledger-Enquirer Photographs. Part of The Columbus Museum on Tour, the exhibition includes photographs from The Columbus Museum’s collection of more than 250 images captured over the decades by Columbus Ledger-Enquirer photographers.

Afterward, members can return home early or join in a late lunch with fellow AMA members at Banks Food Hall, located in the historic Banks Building on Bay Avenue that overlooks the RiverWalk and Chattahoochee River.

There is no cost to participate in the tours, but members provide their own transportation and lunch. Members interested in participating in the Meet-Up can sign up online HERE or by calling Director of Development and Membership Chloe Hinton at 229.439.8400.
