Menaboni CatalogOak Hill and The Martha Berry Museum recently earned statewide acclaim for its 2015 exhibition “Menaboni’s Birds: Georgia’s Own Artist as Naturalist,” which was honored as Museum Exhibition of the Year among exhibits with budgets under $100,000 by the Georgia Association of Museums and Galleries.

Celebrating the work of Italian-born Georgia artist Athos Menaboni, the exhibition was a collaboration between Oak Hill and guest curator Russell Clayton, who assembled a total of 37 Menaboni paintings – many of which had never been shown publicly – from 18 private lenders,

“We are grateful to be recognized by our peers for our work on this exhibition,” said Oak Hill Director Tim Brown. “’Menaboni’s Birds’ brought new attention to The Martha Berry Museum, and visitation almost doubled because of the show.”

Though the exhibit is no longer on display, catalogs featuring prints of the Menaboni paintings can be purchased online through the Oak Hill Gift Shop.
