Larry Walker Retrospective: The Early Years
The highly acclaimed visual artist, art professor, and mentor Larry M. Walker is one of Atlanta’s most treasured creative talents. Walker mixes painting, drawing, collage, and various materials in the process of creating. MOCA GA is thrilled to present a significant retrospective exhibition of Walker’s work in two consecutive parts over the course of 20+ weeks, The Early Years and The Later Years. Both exhibitions will feature works from MOCA GA’s collection and archives, as well as works provided by numerous other institutions and individual collectors.
Although his career as a visual artist and educator expands a half century, there is no scholarly publication documenting Walker’s life achievements and the impact his work has had on Georgia as well as the national art scene. In conjunction with this major retrospective highlighting the development of a lifelong career, MOCA GA will honor this great artist with a scholarly book, publishing his impact and adding it to the literary canon of art in America.
