Georgia Artists Collection 50th Anniversary ExhibitionGeorgia Artist Collection 50th Anniversary

EXHIBITION

In 1967, Betty Foy Sanders established the Georgia Artists Collection when she donated a painting of her own, Coastal Sand Dunes, for permanent display. Since then, Mrs. Sanders has curated the collection by adding key works of art created by notable artists. With her impeccable aesthetic sense and critical eye, Mrs. Sanders chooses artworks for the collection based upon their association with Georgia—whether the artist’s origin, the indigenous materials used, or the regional content of the artwork.

For more information or to RSVP for the reception, please contact Casey Stoddard at cstoddard@georgiasouthern.edu.

K2

By Patrick Meyers

Directed by David Jackson          

PERFORMANCE

The setting is an icy ledge high up on K2, the world’s second highest mountain. Two climbers, Taylor and Harold, are stranded at 27,000 feet, and Harold has suffered a broken leg in their precipitous descent. This thrilling, challenging play uses mountain climbing as a metaphor to explore a deeper theme: the recognition that human beings are free to choose whether they will live or die and do so calmly and objectively, even under the most severe conditions.  January 12 & 13, 2018
