A little culture on the cheap

Female Portrait, 1949

Female Portrait, 1949

Drawing is like making an expressive gesture with the advantage of permanence. – Henri Matisse

Beginning Sunday, January 24, The Oglethorpe University Museum of Art (OUMA) will be showcasing the first-ever North American exhibition of the Albert Skira Collection of Matisse work. Henri Matisse: A Celebration of French Poets and Poetry will showcase 16 etchings and 47 lithographs from a 1930-1932 series and a 1948 series, respectively. The exhibit will run through May 9, 2010 with an opening reception this Saturday night, January 23. Tickets are only $5 for the non-OU general public.

At that price, we can all afford a little culture.*

*I hope to regularly bring you fun, inexpensive things to do around the city because I know I can’t be the only one on a budget.
