The Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University is reopening its Art of the Americas galleries on Saturday, Feb. 9.
The re-installed galleries will offer the public access to new works of art from Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru, according to Emory.
The geographic range of the galleries has been expanded to include work by native North Americans as well as Central and South Americans.
The first special exhibit of Native North American art will include modern Southwestern ceramics in a collection titled, Walking in the Footsteps of Our Ancestors: the Melion-Clum Collection of Modern Southwestern Pottery.
Rebecca Stone, Emory Professor of Art History and Faculty Curator of Art of the Americas at the Carlos Museum, is the curator of the first re-installation of the galleries in a decade.
