FRIENDS OF O.T. HAMMONDS ($350 - $750)
Friends of O.T. Hammonds provide direct support to the work of maintaining our Permanent Collection. There are more than 350 works in the Hammonds House Museum Permanent Collection dating from the mid-19th century by artists from America, Africa, and the Caribbean. About 250 of those works were collected by Dr. Otis Thrash Hammonds (1929-1985), who was a highly respected patron and involved member of Atlanta's arts community and namesake of the Hammonds House Museum.
Highlights of the museum's collection include 18 works by master artist Romare Bearden, and the oldest known painting by acclaimed Hudson Valley School artist Robert S. Duncanson. Benny Andrews, Elizabeth Catlett, Sam Gilliam, Richard Hunt, Jacob Lawrence, P.H. Polk, Hale Woodruff, and James Van Der Zee are among the scores of important regional, national, and international artists represented in the collection. Your support will assist us in the critical tasks of conserving, digitizing, cataloguing, storing and preparing a touring exhibition of the collection. Benefits include complimentary Membership, meet and greets with guest curators and conservators, invitations to exclusive Hammonds House Museum excursions, intimate experiences with artists from the collection. A portion of your gift is tax deductible.
