John D. Johns, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Protective Life, discusses why Protective supports the Museum.
More than 2,000 families attended District 8’s annual Party with a Purpose fun day in Ensley Park. After learning about Romare Bearden’s piece, The Dove, participants created decorative quilt squares as part of a community quilt project and a calendar to be distributed to the district’s constituents.
Thanks to the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Herb Sklenar and their family, the Museum purchased a major example of 18th-century English landscape painting. This glorious view of Chatsworth, one of the stately “treasure houses” of Britain, was painted in about 1725 by Pieter Tillemans (1684-1734), a Flemish artist who played an important role in spreading the visual language of landscape painting.
