OUMA Spring Lecture: Shanequa Gay
From the venue:
Rounding out the Oglethorpe University Museum of Art's spring lecture series will be Atlanta-based artist Shanequa Gay. One of Gay's pieces, "La Pieta" was acquired by the museum in 2019 after several students, together with Oglethorpe’s Student Government Association, successfully led the initiative to purchase the work for the museum to expand the diversity of the artists represented in the museum’s permanent collection, and to better reflect the diversity of Oglethorpe’s student body.
Two of Gay's works — including "La Pieta" — are currently on view in the museum's spring exhibit, "Beloved Community: African American Artists in Atlanta Collections and Beyond."
