Georgia Museum of Art at UGA collects awards from Southeastern Museums Conference

The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia won five awards at this year's Southeastern Museums Conference annual meeting, held earlier this month in Savannah.

The museum received two gold awards for publications this year. Facet, the museum's quarterly newsletter, designed by local firm The Adsmith, took home the gold award in the newsletters and calendar of events category for the second year in a row. The second gold was given to "The Kress Project," the publication resulting from the museum's juried online exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the museum's Kress Study Collection of Renaissance and Baroque paintings. The Kress Project was designed by MacFadden & Thorpe, of San Francisco

The museum's biggest fundraiser, Elegant Salute, received a silver award in the campaigns category for its invitation materials, designed by Michael Lachowski, who also handles public relations for the museum.
