1960 Now
The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia
Featuring work by: Sheila Pree Bright

Opening Reception Sep 25 6:30- 8:30pm

The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia presents Sheila Pree Bright's exhibition: "1960 Now." Sheila Pree Bright, born 1967, is a fine art photographer based in Atlanta. Her large-scale works combine a wide-ranging knowledge of contemporary culture, while challenging perceptions of identity. "1960 Now" is a documentary project showing images of past and present figures of the Civil Rights Movement. This work is an evolution of "1960 Who," a photographic portraiture street series that depicted unknown youth leaders of the Civil Rights Movement from 50 years ago, who took a stand for human rights. Sheila Pree Bright is a 2014/2015 Working Artist Project winner. Each funded year, MOCA GA holds a metro-wide competition to select three working artists based on their talent, professionalism, and their proven ability to complete the project. The MOCA GA Working Artist Project is a year long program that supports metropolitan Atlanta visual artists, expands the Museum's mission, and strengthens the arts and cultural component of Atlanta. Other 2014/2015 Working Artist Project winners, Jonathan Bouknight and Sarah Emerson, will also present solo exhibitions.
