Atlanta City Councilmember Keisha Lance Bottoms and the Atlanta City Council honor Atlanta artist Radcliffe Bailey recently at Atlanta City Hall with two proclamations. Bottoms also hosted a reception in honor of the artist. Bottoms is center right, while artist Bailey (center left with hat on), stands with his wife, actress and author Victoria Rowell on artist’s immediate left. “Radcliffe Bailey, Memory As Medicine” is on display through Sept. 11 at the High Museum of Art. It will travel next to McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas, and the Davis Museum and Cultural Center at Wellesley College in 2012. As a mixed-media artist, Bailey’s exhibit highlights diverse media, showcasing sculptures, paintings, glass works, works-on-paper, and modified found objects.
