About the exhibition

The Georgia Museum of Art is joining with the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah and the Columbus Museum of Art to present the exhibition Andrée Ruellan's 100th Birthday in celebration of the 100th birthday of Andrée Ruellan, an artist whose career spans the 20th century. Ms. Ruellan, who now lives in Woodstock, New York, is an important artist of the WPA period and previously has enjoyed a retrospective at the Georgia Museum of Art. Works included in the exhibition are from the collection of the participating museums as well as private collections; one of Ms. Ruellan's murals, originally painted for the post office in Lawrenceville, and currently on display in the federal courthouse in Athens, will be on tour.
