ABOUT Within State Lines II
To further MOCA GA's mission to support contemporary artists from the entire state of Georgia, Director, Annette Cone-Skelton traveled to four cities: Alpharetta, Athens, Augusta, & Savannah, in order to curate an exhibition of artists from those cities, most have never shown at MOCA GA.
