The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art believes in building community through art. Many locals came together recently to support southern history with local artists.
Upstairs is the Artifacts and Artists of the Civil War, displayed through Sept. 11.
The museum has a new audio tour. Just use your cell phone to have a tour into the past, narrated by local resident Ruth Elsbree.
On the main floor is the Metro Montage XI, an annual juried exhibit put together and judged by Jessica Pepe, who adjudicated the submissions and selected the pieces. She is currently with the Pace Gallery in New York, NY.
