Athens, Georgia and The Do Good Fund Collection

Image
The Willson Center for Humanities & Arts at the University of Georgia will be presenting a number of exhibitions and events over the coming months related to The Do Good Fund Collection. Six different venues in the town of Athens, Georgia will host exhibitions from the collection, which is a public charity dedicated exclusively to photography of the American South. The events are being held in partnership with The Georgia Review, which published a portfolio of images from the collection in their Winter issue, including works by ETSU professors Mike Smith and Joshua Dudley Greer.
Additionally, there will be a panel discussion and portfolio review with Mark Steinmetz, Mike Smith, Baldwin Lee and others on February 19. For a full calendar of events or more information, please click here.
