Georgia Museum of Art receives College Art Association’s Barr Award

The Georgia Museum of Art at UGA received the College Art Association’s Alfred H. Barr Jr. Award for Smaller Museums, Libraries, Collections and Exhibitions for its exhibition catalog Cercle et Carré and the International Spirit of Abstract Art.

The association recognized honorees formally Feb. 11 at the convocation of its 103rd annual conference in New York.

Lynn Boland, the museum’s Pierre Daura Curator of European Art, who organized the exhibition and served as the project leader on the catalog as well as writing its primary essay, attended the conference and accepted the award. Both the exhibition and the catalog focused on Cercle et Carré (Circle and Square), an international group of abstract artists organized by Pierre Daura, Michel Seuphor and Joaquín Torres-García in 1929.
