The University of Georgia special collections libraries will celebrate the opening of the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries with a dedication on Feb. 17 at 11 a.m. on the building's front lawn:
The recently named building houses the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library, the Russell Library for Political Research and Studies, the Walter J. Brown Media Archives and the Peabody Collection.
This video is from my second of three planned visits with Art Rosenbaum as he works to complete his mural at the new special collections library.
Lamar Dodd School of Art professor emeritus Art Rosenbaum was commissioned to create a mural depicting the political history of Georgia for the Russell Library at the New Special; Collections Librairies Building, set to open in 2012. I visited Art on site last week.
