Walk Through the Ages

Lining the halls of the Traverse Gallery is The Arts Center’s collection of Festival on the Square posters starting with its debut in 1982 all the way to its final year in 2003.

Festival on the Square started as an annual spring event hosted by the Colquitt County Arts Council. The festival was a great opportunity for the community to come together through food, crafts, and activities for the family. In 2004, Downtown Moultrie took the torch and the legacy of Festival on the Square now lives on through the annual Spring Fling that is still beloved by the community.

The Arts Center has some of the unframed posters for sale for $15 each. Stop by the Office when you visit the Gallery, or call us at (229) 985-1922.

Galerie Claude Bernard Poster Collection

This gallery was founded in 1957 by Mr. Claude Bernard, near the School of Fine Arts in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. The gallery is Internationally recognized for its exhibitions such as Bacon in 1977, Picasso in 1980, Hockney in 1975, 1982 and 1985, and Giacometti in 2012. The goal of the gallery is to present contemporary artists in both painting and sculpture.

On display are the original posters from exhibitions held at the gallery in Paris, France dating from 1955 to 1979. This collection of posters was donated to The Arts Center by Frank E. Fowler in honor of Tom and Frances Beard in 1997.
