LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR

E

xploring Columbus and the surrounding region is truly a pleasure, with more attractions and customs to discover every week. In addition to getting to know the arts community and local cultural attractions, I am enjoying learning about the city’s diverse history and traditions, savoring local dishes such as Country Captain, and appreciating the southern springtime, surely the most beautiful in the country. Most of all, I am struck by the strong, distinct sense of identity that Columbus and the Lower Chattahoochee Valley have in a time when many cities are losing their local customs and sense of community. The Museum’s spring and summer exhibitions and programs are a terrific way to learn about our region, for they feature many of the things that make the Lower Chattahoochee Valley special. Chattahoochee Cookin’, which presents some of the area’s important food traditions, continues on view through September 20 in the Third Floor Galleries. This issue of The Muse lists several related programs that are centered around the ever-popular theme of food, including a July workshop on canning and preserving. Coming in August, for the first time, the Museum’s Galleria will be the location of an exhibition, Discovering the Chattahoochee Valley: Silk Paintings by René Shoemaker, which presents a series of silk paintings inspired by the sights and sounds of Columbus. In the Yarbrough Gallery, the

work of Sally Bradley and Stephen Hawks, two area artists who look to the land to create landscape paintings and pottery, respectively will be on view in Poetry of Earth: Works by Sally Bradley and Stephen Hawks. We are particularly delighted to show objects from two important collections of Columbus history in the exhibition Once Collected, Always Cherished: Highlights from the George Greene and J. Kyle Spencer Collections. Judge Greene’s collection of local historical artifacts includes a number of objects and historical documents related to the musician “Blind Tom” Wiggins, while J. Kyle Spencer’s collection of colonial maps, on loan from the Columbus State University Archives, focuses on Georgia. When Judge Greene’s collection went to public auction in 2014 and 2015, the Museum Board and staff, led by its History Committee and Curator of History Rebecca Bush, recognized both the unique opportunity to acquire major historical documents of Columbus and the urgency of keeping them in the region. It would not have been possible to acquire the collection without the help of many supporters, and we are grateful to them for making these acquisitions possible. The Young Art Patrons will kick off the summer with a garden concert on June 4. They are also leading the Museum into new waters with the first crowdsourcing campaign, “Light up the Garden,” which will raise funds to add landscape lighting to the Bradley Olmsted

Garden. Their enthusiasm and new ideas for the Museum are infectious, and I hope you’ll be able to join them for this summer concert. Summer also brings the return of Fantastic Fridays on June 12, offered weekly in the Patrick Theater for children and adults. These live performances are free, as are those on Third Thursdays, which will feature folk music by Veronika Jackson and gallery walks of the Troublemakers and Trailblazers exhibition on June 18. I hope to see you at the Museum this summer as we celebrate the wonderful history, art, and culture of the Lower Chattahoochee Valley!

DISCOVERING THE CHATTAHOOCHEE VALLEY SILK PAINTINGS BY RENE SHOEMAKER

AUGUST 23, 2015 – JULY 2016 | GALLERIA

I

n August, artist René Shoemaker will transform the Galleria with an exhibition of large-scale silk paintings, on view until the following July. Shoemaker, a long-time resident of Athens, Georgia, creates hand-painted silk works that celebrate the distinctive character of a city or place. For her exhibition at The Columbus Museum, the artist has created sitespecific works about the Chattahoochee Valley after visiting and immersing herself in its sights, sounds, and smells and making preliminary sketches of buildings, spaces, and people. Shoemaker solicited responses from the Columbus-area community through social media to decide which buildings and locations could be used in the paintings. The silk paintings on view in the exhibition thus truly capture the characteristics that make the Chattahoochee Valley unique. Shoemaker explains that the project was “about discovering what makes the city and valley unique to its citizens and visitors. What patterns in the landscape are distinguishable, and how can I tease out the beauty of these sites great and small? What

memories are held by the people there; what locations do they like to visit the most? Where are the neighborhoods they drive through without really seeing, and where do they like to meet with friends? What do the children remember as they grow up in Columbus?” Shoemaker’s medium of hand-painted silk has dye applied directly to the material. For this project, she used silk twill, a midweight silk that billows gently as the air moves. Shoemaker received her B.F.A. from the University of Georgia and a degree in library sciences (M.L.I.S.) from the University of South Carolina. She lives in the woods in Oconee County, Georgia, in a handmade octagon house.

ONCE COLLECTED, ALWAYS CHERISHED HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE GEORGE GREENE AND J. KYLE SPENCER COLLECTIONS

AUGUST 16, 2015 – JANUARY 10, 2016 | GALLERIA CASES 1

T

he Columbus Museum recently acquired several items from the collection of the late Russell County Circuit Court Judge George Greene. An avid collector of local historical artifacts for decades, Greene served on the Museum’s History Committee and applied a keen eye to capturing the rich heritage of the Chattahoochee Valley. Chief among these items is an extensive archive related to the musician “Blind Tom” Wiggins, as well as several items related to the Civil War in Columbus. The Museum is proud to unveil these 50 pieces as new additions to its collection. The exhibition also features maps from the J. Kyle Spencer Map Collection at the Columbus State University Archives. Spencer collected maps documenting the emergence and evolution of the American colonies, specifically Georgia, for more than 30 years. The history of European settlement, American Indian communities and their forced removal, and the growth of Georgia counties can be traced through these unusual and colorful maps. This exhibition celebrates the legacy of two local collectors and their collections, which can now be cherished and enjoyed by the Chattahoochee Valley for years to come.

HISTORY ACQUISITIONS

SUMMER 2015

ACQUISITIONS FROM THE COLLECTION OF JUDGE GEORGE GREENE

T

he Chattahoochee Valley lost one of its most passionate collectors of local history on New Year’s Day 2014, when Russell County Circuit Court Judge George Greene passed away at the age of 63. A Phenix City native, Judge Greene dedicated his life to public service through the law, teaching Sunday school, and establishing the Cora Reid Greene Home for Children. He also served on the Museum’s History Committee and loaned objects for temporary exhibitions. Judge Greene’s extensive collection of historic artifacts spanned from the prehistoric to the late twentieth century, focusing primarily on Columbus, Phenix City, and Fort Benning. He conducted countless hours of in depth research and showcased these remarkable objects in his own private museum, located in the basement of the old Phenix City post office. In late 2014 and early 2015, the Museum purchased more than 75 objects from the Greene collection at public auction in Maine and Tennessee. Chief among the Museum’s purchases is an archive of more than 50 items related to the life of “Blind Tom” Wiggins. Born into slavery near Columbus in 1849, Wiggins was blind and considered “dumb” in nineteenth-century terminology. Today, he would most likely be identified as an autistic savant for his remarkable skills of mimicry. Wiggins could replicate almost any sound he heard with his voice or the piano, which he first played at the age of four in the house of his owner, General James Bethune. Not only could Wiggins play complicated pieces flawlessly after hearing them once, he composed more than 1,000 pieces of original music, often based on sounds of nature. Wiggins gave his first public performance in Columbus when he was eight years old and soon began touring across America and Europe as “Blind Tom.” At 10 years old, Wiggins performed for President James Buchanan in 1860, becoming the first African-American

1

musician to perform at the White House. The annual revenue from his concerts and sheet music sales totaled $100,000, the equivalent of nearly $3 million annually today. Sadly, Wiggins received none of this money, as members of the Bethune family fought fierce legal battles after the Civil War to retain legal guardianship of Tom and control his earnings. He continued performing until the late years of his life and died in Hoboken, N.J., after suffering a stroke in 1908. The “Blind Tom” archive includes a substantial collection of sheet music, concert programs, and newspaper articles, as well as rare images of Wiggins. The Museum also purchased several objects that relate to Columbus during the Civil War. As the Confederacy’s

second-largest manufacturing center, Columbus played an essential role in supplying southern troops at land and sea. A wooden canteen made near Phenix City, sword belt plates produced by the renowned Haiman swordsmiths, a rifle manufactured at the Columbus Armory of John D. Gray, and a sailor’s canvas duffel bag marked “Columbus, Georgia” all represent the variety of wartime products that came from the Chattahoochee Valley. Some artifacts tell two sides of the same story: The diary of Columbus native Lieutenant James Slade tells of his wartime experiences in Virginia and Mississippi, but a camp chest that doubled as a writing desk was brought to the Battle of Columbus by Captain

James Grousbeck, a member of the 3rd Iowa Cavalry. After the war, Columbus women created the Ladies Memorial Association and planned perhaps the first observation of Memorial Day, garnering attention across the country while wearing homemade ribbons like the one now in the Museum’s collection. The course of American history almost changed dramatically in Columbus, when a notable theatrical leading man was accidentally shot in his dressing room, the bullet narrowly missing a vital artery that would have caused him to bleed out in minutes if hit. The year was 1860, and the performer was John Wilkes Booth. The Museum now owns a broadside advertising Booth’s scheduled

performances at Columbus’ Temperance Hall. Other artifacts acquired include delegate ribbons and a pin worn in the early twentieth century by members of the local Benning chapter of the United Confederate Veterans; documents signed by two of Russell County’s most influential early residents, Colonel John Crowell and Stephen Girard; and the largest mastodon tusk ever found in the Chattahoochee Valley. The Columbus Museum is proud to be the new home of this wonderful portion of the Greene collection, and we are grateful for all of our supporters who came forward to ensure these artifacts will remain in the Chattahoochee Valley to be studied and enjoyed by future generations.

SUMMER 2015

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT Name:

Jacy Jenkins, Young Art Patrons Board Member/Marketing Director, The Loft How long have you been a member?

I have only been a Museum member for the past year, but have enjoyed the free admission most of my life. Describe your most memorable experiences at the Museum:

The Leaving Mississippi exhibit by Najee Dorsey was extremely thought provoking, beautifully personal and intense. It is incredible when an artist's exhibition fascinates you, then compels you to find more of their work. I also enjoyed the Warhol exhibit (2013) and the In the Garden concert series is always fun! By serving on the board of the Young Art Patrons...

I've learned immensely about the plethora of events, exhibits, and effort it takes to continue highlighting art at our historic museum. Connecting with other interesting art enthusiasts, I may have never met otherwise, has been a special bonus! Everyone should be a member because...

You are supporting our museum. You are able to connect with others in the art community, with discounts to all the special events, while (hopefully) improving our town's art culture. Pictured above: Jacy Jenkins

ART WITH THE MASTERS JUNE 11 | 6 – 8 P.M. | FEATURING ERIN FITZHUGH GREGORY Please join us for art, wine, and a good time as you create your own acrylic landscape masterpiece with local artist Erin Fitzhugh Gregory. In this workshop, you will use acrylic paint on canvas and your imagination to complete a work of your own. Reserve your seat by June 4; $35 members/$45 Future members. Fee includes all materials, hors d’oeuvres, and beverages. RSVP; please contact Laura Narr at 706.748.2562, ext. 544 or lnarr@columbusmuseum.com.

PLAN YOUR LEGACY Planned giving is a viable way to include charitable giving in your total financial and estate plans. As you set your financial plan, think of ways to consider the museum: • The Shorter Society – recognizes friends of The Columbus Museum who have made bequests in their wills or other planned gifts in support of the continuing financial success of this institution. • Bequest – make a planned gift that includes The Columbus Museum in your will or revocable living trust. • Charitable Gift Annuity – provides you with regular fixed payments annually for life in exchange for transferring assets to the Museum.

YOUNG ART PATRONS:

LIGHT UP THE GARDEN CONCERT JUNE 4 | 6 – 8 P.M. | FEATURING LESLEY AND PAYNE

• Charitable Remainder Trust – an agreement between you and a trustee that can provide fixed or variable income to meet your specific financial needs, at the termination of which the remaining assets are passed to the Museum.

We are pleased to announce an exciting crowdfunding initiative of starting a fundraising mission to secure funds for “light up the garden.” The goal is to raise the money for a lighting system in the garden by our October concert.

• Gift of Plans and Policies – includes IRAs and qualified retirement plans like 401(k)s.

Bring your picnic basket as well as blankets or chairs and soak in tunes of your favorite songs by local cover band Lesley and Payne.

• Charitable Lead Trust – enables you to preserve a portion of your estate and pass assets tax-free to your heirs.

Register by May 28; please contact Laura Narr at 706.748.2562, ext. 544 or lnarr@columbusmuseum.com. Free Museum member/$15 Future member or $15 donation to Light Up the Garden campaign
