GPB’s All Things Considered host Rickey Bevington recently talked with the exhibit's curator, Radcliffe Bailey.
A couple who amassed one of the nation's major private collections of African-American art is donating 100 works to the Georgia Museum of Art in Athens. Larry and Brenda Thompson also will fund a new curatorial position at the museum.
