Exhibition: Pylon: Tourists in Rock n' Roll

In 1979, Randall Bewley, Curtis Crowe, Vanessa Briscoe Hay, and Michael Lachowski formed the band Pylon in Athens, Georgia. All connected to the local art scene, what the members lacked in musical experience they made up for with bold experimentation. The group created a danceable, new wave sound and unique visual style that became a foundational part of the emerging music scene in Athens during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Experiencing Cortona: Celebrating 50 Years of UGA Study Abroad

In 1969, professor Jack Kehoe journeyed to Italy to create a unique opportunity for University of Georgia students. He found the ideal site for an experiential learning environment amidst the history, culture and beauty of Cortona.

"Experiencing Cortona: Celebrating 50 Years of UGA Study Abroad" reflects on the program’s history with a display of original artifacts, photographs, documents and more drawn from the Cortona Program Records, a part of the university’s archives housed in the Hargrett Library.

Virtual Panel: Behind the Scenes with Freelance Filmmakers

Have you ever wondered who does all the research for some of your favorite documentaries and films? The answer is freelance archival producers! These "footage detectives" dive into the archives and wade through decades worth of material to bring documentaries to life. Their profession has been described as "Indiana Jones for nerds." Footage researchers are born storytellers, and their behind-the-scenes tales are often even more entertaining than what we see on the screen.
