Artist’s donation decorates Map Library

Harold R. “Huddy” Hudgens Jr., an Albany resident who holds a degree in landscape architecture from UGA, has helped brighten the walls of the UGA Map Library.

A regular library user, Hudgens urged his artist friends Rena Divine and her husband, William T. Divine Jr., a former member of the University System of Georgia Board of Regents, to donate four artist’s proofs from Rena’s series “Plantations of Southwest Georgia.” Primarily a wildlife watercolorist, Rena has produced some of the most stunning paintings of quail, dove and ducks in the Southeast.

The Map Library, located at the intersection of Whitehall Road and Milledge Avenue, is a research-level cartographic collection whose substantial holdings include maps, aerial photography and remote sensed imagery, atlases, digital spatial data and reference materials.
