My Journey in Art features a selection of works from Caldwell’s extensive collection of Fine Art. James Caldwell has been an enthusiastic collector of art for 20 years, and a supporter of the Tubman Museum for even longer.
Caldwell’s career as an educator began in Jones County in 1967. In 1968, two years before mandatory integration, Caldwell became only the second African American teacher at then-segregated Lanier High School in Macon. Caldwell taught History, Humanities and French in Bibb County Public Schools from 1968 to 2005. Over the course of his 38-year career he educated generations of students, many of whom have in turn made great contributions to the quality of life in Macon and Middle Georgia. James Caldwell is a man who has not only had a significant impact on the Tubman Museum, but has been a constant, wise, and always positive influence in the day-to-day life of our community.
My Journey in Art will remain on exhibit at the Tubman through October 15, 2022.
