Dr. Roy T. Ward, Jr. (1922–2015) of Watkinsville, Georgia was a doctor by profession, but an artist at heart. Not only was he a skilled physician, but also an accomplished painter in both oils and watercolors, and a talented printmaker, as well. He was a photographer and author, and also a collector of regional quilts and Japanese prints. He became interested in Japanese prints while in medical school and collected them whenever and wherever he could. A friend to the Museum for many years, Dr. Ward donated a collection of over 100 18th, 19th, and 20th Century Japanese woodblock prints and woodblock printed books to the collection in 2013. The 14 prints on view are but a small sample of Dr. Ward’s wonderful gift, which is the largest and most important donation of such material to the Museum. [less-]

Dr. Roy T. Ward, Jr. (1922–2015) of Watkinsville, Georgia was a doctor by profession, but an artist at heart. Not only was he a skilled physician, but also an accomplished painter in both oils and watercolors, and a talented printmaker, as well. He was a photographer and author, and also a collector of regional quilts and Japanese prints. He became interested in Japanese prints while in medical school and collected them whenever and wherever he could. A friend to the Museum for many years, Dr. Ward donated a collection of over 100 18th, 19th, and 20th Century Japanese woodblock prints and woodblock printed books to the collection in 2013. The 14 prints on view are but a small sample of Dr. Ward’s wonderful gift, which is the largest and most important donation of such material to the Museum. [less-]

The 19th Annual Sidewalk Film Festival, a celebration of new independent cinema in downtown Birmingham, is set to take place August 22nd-27th, 2017. Since its debut in 1999, filmmakers from across the country and around the world have come to Birmingham to screen their work at Sidewalk and have been thrilled to discover fresh, enthusiastic crowds eager to devour new independent cinema.

Keith’s Vaudeville circuit), spontaneity rules the schedule of Sidewalk attendees. Low-priced weekend passes provide easy access to Sidewalk venues, encouraging attendees to seek out new films and sample programming they may not otherwise see.
