On Sunday, November 4th a very special exhibition will open at the Tubman African American Museum. At 3:00 P.M. there will be a reception at the Tubman to celebrate the opening of the National Arts Program: Bibb County Public School District Exhibition. The reception will take place in the first floor atrium of the Tubman Museum. This event is free and open to the public.
This exhibition is the result of a partnership between the Tubman Museum, the Bibb County Public School District, the Macon Arts Alliance and the National Arts Program. It is the second time these community organizations have partnered with the NAP to present an exhibition that celebrates the creativity of the citizens of Macon. The exhibition features over 200 works created by past and present employees of the Bibb County School District and their families. Artists of all ages and skill levels have participated. Their works are exhibited in the museum without prejudice. The exhibition is juried by experienced artists, with awards presented based on artistic experience.
The National Arts program is a non-profit organization that celebrates the creative talents of employees across the country by providing opportunities for employees and their family members to participate in professional visual arts exhibitions. The NAP has been organizing and supporting annual employee art exhibitions for more than 30 years. Exhibitions have been mounted in more than 80 cities across the country. This is the second time Macon, Georgia has been a venue for an NAP exhibition.
