As part of Celebrating 40 years of Art in Downtown Athens, the Lyndon House Arts Center is partnering with the Athens Area Arts Council (AAAC) to present lunchtime, hour-long lectures by experts in topics such as grant writing, crowd funding, building online portfolios, gallery etiquette and more.
This month, Marilyn Wolf-Ragatz, former Chair of the Athens Cultural Affairs Commission and arts educator, will discuss creating successful proposals to secure public art grants. Wolf-Ragatz has been instrumental in Athens-Clarke County public arts initiatives and during her tenure as chair and current committee representative, has spearheaded several public artworks, adding to the enrichment of our city including the Nest sculpture at the Classic Center, the artist banners on downtown parking deck and most recently, the sculpture and mural at the ACC Library. She worked as an Art Ed Professor at the University of Georgia, is an avid art collector and a dedicated professional contributor to many arts organizations and public art causes.

Members of the Lyndon House Arts Center and the Athens Area Arts Council are free of charge, non-members are $15 with proceeds benefitting both AAAC and the Lyndon House Arts Center.
