Guided Exhibition Tour: Memories & Inspiration

Join us on July 14 for a guided tour of Memories & Inspiration: The Kerry and C. Betty Davis Collection of African American Art. This tour is free with standard admission and will begin in the Lehr Gallery at 2pm.
Space is limited. Please reserve your spot below.

Memories & Inspiration draws generously from the Davis Collection, a treasury of artworks located in a private home in Atlanta, Georgia, primarily by African American artists but also featuring some works from other parts of the African diaspora. This landmark collection was assembled by Kerry and Betty Davis, an ordinary working class couple who happily sacrificed material goods and comforts in order to surround themselves with the drawings, paintings, prints, and sculptures they loved. Guided by a passion for collecting and by their extensive knowledge of art—as well as a desire to preserve cultural memories and inspire their community—the Davises have built one of the richest private collections of African American art in the world. The Memories & Inspiration traveling exhibition is their way of sharing some of its highlights with art lovers outside of Atlanta.
