This show is an ambitious collaboration between the Steffen Thomas Museum of Art and Athens artist Broderick Flanigan. This summer, Broderick is working with a group of students from Clarke Co. Middle to create several large-scale panel murals, which will be featured as pieces of the exhibition. Together, they will create artwork inspired by Steffen Thomas’s "Brotherhood of Mankind" philosophy.
Flanigan also worked with a group of students from Morgan Co. High School, Clarke Co. High School, and Clarke Co. Middle School to create large-scale paintings and a mural design which will be painted live in the Museum's West Gallery from Sept. 27 to Oct. 9. For two weeks, visitors will be able to watch Broderick and the students slowly bring it to life.
The exhibition will be made up of the middle school students’ paintings, the mural, and a selection of smaller works by Broderick and Steffen Thomas. This exhibition is on view in the Museum’s West Gallery from September 16 to November 6, 2021, Tuesday thru Saturday 11AM - 4PM.
