Henry D. Green Center & Symposium

Athens - Clarke County

Georgia Museum of Art
Athens, Clarke County

Since opening in 2000, the Green Center for the Study of the Decorative Arts at the Georgia Museum of Art in Athens has promoted the preservation and study of material culture in Georgia and the South. Bonnie Ramsey was the driving force behind the decorative arts program which was named in honor of Henry D. Green, the foremost scholar of Georgia’s early regional styles. The center is a valuable resource for object-based learning in the humanities and has become a national leader in research. The biannual Henry D. Green Symposium of the Decorative Arts has become one of the largest events of its kind, hosting presentations by numerous scholars from Georgia and beyond.
