COMMUNITY: ART AT THE CHILDREN'S MEDICAL CENTER

Art at the Children's Medical Center

Morris Museum staff members have conducted workshops inspired by artwork in the permanent collection for extended and short-term patients at the Children's Medical Center at the Medical College of Georgia. In addition to making art, students learn about the artists whose work is displayed in the museum.

This program is sponsored by the Fred A. Moss Charitable Trust. Additional support is provided by J. Noel Schweers III, P.C., Marsh, Inc., Hull, Towill, Norman, Barrett & Salley, P.C., and by Club Car, Inc.
