Join Dale Couch, curator of decorative arts, for a tour of the museum’s newest exhibition, “Material Georgia 1733–1900: Two Decades of Scholarship,” which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Henry D. Green Center for the Study of Decorative Arts. Examining Georgia’s influence on early decorative arts, the show displays a range of furniture, silver, pottery, textiles, basketry and portraits and aims to contextualize these objects within the state’s complicated cultural history. Notable highlights include works by Lucius Jordan, Georgia’s earliest known native-born trained potter, as well as textiles woven by yeoman women farmers. “Material Georgia” will remain on view through Mar. 15.
