Georgia Museum of Art launches new format for its quarterly receptions

The Georgia Museum of Art will hold its quarterly art reception, “90 Carlton: Autumn,” on Sept. 13 from 6-9 p.m. Free and open to the public, it will be the first reception in the GMOA’s new participatory and art-oriented format. 

Inspired by the New York Collection for Stockholm exhibition, an art-making workshop will be held for participants to use printmaking techniques to adorn cloth tote bags. The evening will include two tours in the galleries. William U. Eiland, director of the art museum, will lead a tour of De Wain Valentine: Human Scale, which features large, 1970s minimalist sculptures. Lynn Boland, the Pierre Daura Curator of European Art, will  lead a tour of The New York Collection for Stockholm, which features 1960s prints by New York artists.  In addition to a reception with free food and drinks, a disc jockey will play 1960s and 1970s California music in conjunction with the Valentine show.
