ATLANTApix: Mixing Metaphors

Mixing Metaphors
"Mixing Metaphors" at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum
Currently on display at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum is an outstanding art exhibition called "Mixing Metaphors: the Aesthetic, the Social and the Political in African American Art." Depicting extraordinary moments to the mundane, the more than 90 works reflect the artists' emotions relative to politics, race, class, and gender.

The works of art, in the mediums of paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, sculptures and mixed media, are from the Bank of America collection and will be on display through Sunday, July 31, 2011.

Other highlights of the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum include an exact replica of the Oval Office as it was during the Carter administration (1977-1981). There are also regular speaker and author (book signing) events, including President Carter himself, from time to time.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
