Museum to host lecture on Western art

The Georgia Museum of Art will present a lecture by Seth Hopkins, executive director of the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville. The lecture, “Contemporary Western Art: More than Cowboys and Indians,” will be held Sept. 24 at
5:30 p.m. It is open free to the public.

Hopkins will define what the terms “contemporary” and “Western” mean for art today, while tracing the artistic developments of Western art over the past 50 years. He also will discuss the lasting legacy of Western artists from the early 19th and 20th centuries for artists working today.

Hopkins has served as the executive director at the Booth Western Art Museum since 2000 and the executive director of Georgia Museums Inc., the parent company that operates the Booth Western Art Museum and two other museums, since 2003.
