Join MOCA GA as we present the major retrospective exhibition and accompanying hard-back publication!

About the Project

The highly acclaimed visual artist, art professor, and mentor Larry M. Walker is one of Atlanta’s most treasured creative talents. Walker mixes painting, drawing, collage, and various materials in the process of creating. The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MOCA GA) will present a significant exhibition consisting of two parts during a 25 + week long exhibition in 2018. This exhibition will feature works from MOCA GA’s permanent collection and archives, as well as works provided by numerous other institutions and individual collectors.

Although his career as a visual artist and educator expands a half century, there is no scholarly publication documenting Walker's life achievements and the impact his work has had on Georgia as well as the national art scene. In conjunction with the major retrospective highlighting the development of a lifelong career, MOCA GA will honor this great artist with a scholarly book, publishing his impact and adding it to the literary cannon of art in America.  

It is of great importance that Walker's work and history be shown, documented, and distributed to inspire and encourage future generations of teachers and artists! 

A gift in any amount will be matched dollar for dollar by the City of Atlanta!
