The first event in a new series of programs called “Memorial Drive,” presented by the Rose Library and ArtsATL, this panel discussion will explore the history of the arts in Atlanta. Nexus alumni helped build the institution in its founding years, and their discussion will focus on the history of the Nexus Contemporary Arts Center (now Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center) and its role in broadening the arts scene in Atlanta and the South. The panel will be moderated by Randy Gue, curator of modern political and historical collections at the Rose Library.
Christeene Alcosiba, manager of operations and public programming, will be hosting informal tours of the newly renovated Rose Library from 5:30-6:45 p.m. for any interested parties. No sign-up required.
