Brookhaven residents like those at Monte Hewett Homes Park at Oglethorpe benefit from having a world-class museum in their own backyard. Located on the campus of Oglethorpe University, the Oglethorpe University Museum of Art impresses all year long with its permanent collection of fine art and also welcomes three originally conceived and curated exhibitions each year. The exhibitions at OUMA feature international artists and art forms intended to be both beautiful and meaningful.
This fall, OUMA brings the work of Russian-born painter and printmaker Marc Chagall to Atlanta. Featuring 65 rarely viewed etchings and aquatints from this renowned artist, Chagall will be open from September 25 through December 11. The early etchings that make up this exhibition include the “Dead Souls” prints, which were originally in the private collection of Lionello Venturi, likely the first scholar to write about the history of art criticism. The exhibit will also feature five Chagall colored lithographs from a private collection.
OUMA is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is $5 for adult non-members.
