We were all in such a tizzy getting things ready for our building's grand opening a week ago, I completely forgot to blog about it! Now that the dust has settled and we've all taken a bit of time to rest here are some pictures from the opening of our galleries in the new Richard B. Russell Special Collections Library on Friday, February 17, 2012.
For a good recap of the event, check out this article in the Athens Banner Herald. It was a great event -- good food, lots of visitors, and some great speakers at the dedication ceremony. We hope the crowd was just the beginning and that the visitors to the gallery space keep on coming!
As we settle in and get back to planning programs, be sure to check the blog for information on upcoming events. In the meantime, be sure to come and visit the galleries from 8-5PM Monday-Friday and 1-5PM on Saturdays.
