Virtual Family Day: The Thompson Collection of African American Art

In 2012, collectors Larry and Brenda Thompson donated 100 works of art to the museum. This major collection includes paintings, prints and sculpture dating from the 1890s to the present. Check out examples of these works of art in the museum's permanent collection and create your own family-centered collage based on “7 Steps” by Radcliffe Bailey. Virtual Family Day includes an Art at Home worksheet, online games and an art activity kit that can be ordered from Athens' own K.A. Artist Shop. Family Day art kits are sponsored by Heyward Allen Motor Co., Inc., Heyward Allen Toyota and the Friends of the Georgia Museum of Art.

Please note: As situations change, virtual events may become in-person events and vice versa.
