This show is an ambitious collaboration between 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 pieces of the exhibition. Together, they will create artwork inspired by Steffen Thomas’s Brotherhood of Mankind philosophy.
Shortly after the show opens on September 16, Broderick and a small group of local high school students from Clarke Co. High and Morgan Co. High will begin painting a mural on the Museum's West Gallery wall, as designed by Broderick. 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.
