This event is for Atlanta Contemporary members only. All RSVPs are required to be under a current AC member name, but members are welcome to bring a friend! Registration for this event is available in the July/August Members Only newsletters.

About Dalton Gallery at Agnes Scott College

The Agnes Scott College permanent collection began in 1965 with a gift of 50 original works from Harry L Dalton given to the college to honor his wife, Mary Keesler Dalton, class of 1925.

Since then, the permanent collection of the college has grown to a robust collection built around the Mission of the college and designed to serve the education of the students.

Selections from the permanent collection are on view across the campus and are available to the public.
