This exhibition interpreted Georgia's history through such objects as furniture, silver, textiles, paintings, iron work, ceramics, maps, and Native-American artifacts. More than 150 objects created by Georgia craftsmen before the Civil War composed the most comprehensive collection of Georgia-made objects ever assembled. The publication includes descriptions of the development of culture in Georgia, details of Georgia's native-American and decorative arts, and an evaluation of commemorative art in mid-nineteenth-century Georgia. The catalogue of works in the exhibition illustrates the relationship between historical events in Georgia and the quality of arts that emerged from the state during those periods of time.
