    Sat, July 08 to Sun, July 23

    Annie Lucille Greene, Georgia native, painter, craftswoman, and retired educator, is best known for her yarn paintings. Her very recognizable style is distinguished by the use of colorful knitting yarns outlined in black embroidery thread. Her paintings frequently reflect culturally and socially relevant images of her life as an African American in the rural South. Of particular relevance to Tifton, the subject of one of Greene’s paintings are children playing in front of a Rosenwald School (pictured above). The Rosenwald school project was a partnership between Booker T. Washington, at Tuskeegee University, Alabama, and Julius Rosenwald, a businessman and philanthropist, in Chicago, Illinois. In a creative and collaborative effort these men managed to build almost 5,000 schools across the rural south in the first half of the 1900s to education African-American children. One such school, the Tift County Industrial School, was built with the assistance of a grant from the Rosenwald fund, on land originally donated by Captain Tift. Entry for this exhibit is free and open to the public. The opening reception will be from Saturday, July 8: 5 – 7 PM. The exhibit hours will Thursday & Fridays: 4 – 7 PM as well as Saturday & Sundays from 11 AM – 4 PM!
