Member’s Cultural Excursion: Paradise Garden, Summerville, GA
Saturday, April 18, 9am – 5pm

Join curator Daniel Fuller for a day trip to Paradise Garden in Summerville, Ga, the beloved home of artist Howard Finster. His accumulation of odd objects, tools, antiques, and curios attract visitors from around the world.

Immediately following lunch, Jordan Poole, Executive Director of Paradise Garden, will conduct a guided tour of the gardens, including exclusive access to places closed to the general public. The group will return by Minibus and arrive at The Contemporary at 5pm.
