August 20th – December 20th
This exhibition reflects on living in and looking at the southern region of the United States. In response to the country’s recent social reawakening, the exhibit invites critique, analysis, investigation, and admiration for what it means to be a man, a good man, a southern man. The combination of photos examines issues centered on desire, race, religion, class, and gender. It will be exhibited from August 20th – December 20th. The work will be on loan from the Do Good Fund.
The Do Good Fund, Inc. is a Columbus, Georgia based public charity. Since it’s founding in 2012, the fund has focused on building a museum quality collection of photographs taken in the American South since World War II. The collection ranges from works by more than 20 Guggenheim Fellows to images by lesser-known and emerging photographers working in the region. Do Good’s mission is to make its collection of nearly 600 images broadly accessible through regional museums, nonprofit galleries, and nontraditional venues and to encourage complimentary, community-based programing to accompany each exhibition.
