Velma Fann:”I Found It in the Archives!” Finalists

I found this to move me to post here…although I do not know this lady, she lives in my community and has had similar thoughts I’ve had about the West End, Race and why we are here…

I’m proud of  her entry being selected as a finalist! Congratulations, Velma Fann-where every you are 🙂

Take a look at her Essay. She is one of two finalists in MARBL’s 2011 “I Found It In the Archives!” contest. Velma Fann discusses her discoveries and how those findings had an impact on her connection to Emory and Atlanta history. Also don’t forget to vote!!

Q: Is there a museum in Atlanta that focuses exclusively on art from Africa and African-Americans?

A: The city’s varied art collection includes two options to see African art up close: Hammonds House Museum and the High Museum of Art. Hammonds House, in a Victorian home in Atlanta’s West End, displays the late Dr. Otis Thrash Hammonds’ extensive art collection, with more than 250 pieces. You also will find a focus on African art at the city’s largest art museum – the High Museum of Art in Midtown. Its more than 700 African art pieces include those from the ancient to contemporary, with more than 450 works from Fred and Rita Richman’s collection. You’ll find works such as sculptures from central and west Africa created between 1850 and 1950, and Yoruba masks, beadwork, ceramic arts, metal work and figurative sculpture. Sounds like a perfect way to spend the day indoors and out of the cold.
