DESCRIPTION

One of Georgia’s premier cultural institutions, Augusta’s Morris Museum of Art is the first museum in the country devoted to the art and artists of the American South. Noted for its multifaceted permanent collection and a rich variety of continuously changing special exhibitions and public programs, the Morris is dedicated to the continued interpretation of Southern art in all its forms.

The museum’s permanent collection, which holds approximately five thousand paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculpture, dating from the late-eighteenth century to the present, is displayed in galleries dedicated to antebellum portraiture, the Civil War, genre painting, still life, landscape, Southern impressionism, contemporary painting, and works on paper. It is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m., and on Sunday, noon–5:00 p.m.

The Morris is currently reinstalling its entire permanent collection, which will reopen Friday, March 5, 2010 at the Seventeenth Annual Morris Museum of Art Gala.
