Kaleidoscope EyesCurated by Erin Smith
Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes
– The Beatles “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”
Inspired by the classic Beatles song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, curator Erin Smith brings us an experience of ‘70s visual culture. With lush, layered photos, vintage fabrics, multicolor imagery, and poetic language, we find ourselves disoriented- yet delighted. This type of visual disorientation points to something larger – our perspective. When we look through the kaleidoscope, we are challenged to look at the world from a different vantage point.

Perspectives in Preservation:
presented by Thomasville Landmarks
A look at people and places in historic preservation- from architectural detail and local landmarks, to the people- just like you – who help make it happen.
What is your perspective on preservation?
This collection of enigmatic black and white photographs tell the story of Thomasville residents and their unique investment in the preservation of their town. Photography done by Carrie Viohl.
The Photographer in Residence program and Perspectives in Preservation exhibit were supported by the Georgia Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly.
Art is a Window: into history
Art is a window into a specific place and time. Do you ever wonder why contemporary art sometimes looks simplistic? Or why so many paintings from the Renaissance portray religious figures? In order to understand where art is now, we need to look to the past. Visual art has shifted over time, taking different forms in response to changes in history
Look through the windows of the shadowboxes to observe the progression of Western art over the span of seven centuries. Each art movement corresponds to major shifts in culture- the shared values that shape people and how they live. If you look closely you can see the value of a place, time, and culture reflected in its’ art.
