Sara Shealy was selected as the fall curatorial intern for the Johnson Collection in Spartanburg, SC. The collection, owned by George and Susu Johnson, offers an extensive survey of artistic activity on the American South from the late eighteenth century to the present day.
Through this exhibition, Sara will explore how the artists of the Charleston Renaissance created works that had a significant impact on the city’s economy. Her research brings together traditional art historical and economic research and museum studies. Her work will also be part of Ann Rodrick and Bill Barnet’s civic engagement seminar.
