Rosenbaum mural dedication


The new mural by art professor emeritus Art Rosenbaum, depicting the political history of Georgia, will be officially dedicated in its new home inside the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Library with a reception at 5:30 p.m. today in the 2nd floor Russell Gallery. There will be remarks by curators and the artist about the tremendous new work by the tireless Rosenbaum, who has given so much to the university over his long career. This mural, "Doors," has been of particular interest to me as I've been doing interviews with Art at the mural throughout the painting process. Here's one of the early ones.
