The Do Good Fund in Athens, Georgia
The Do Good Fund is building an exceptional collection of Southern photographs, a collection that grows and grows, promising to become the most complete and comprehensive collection of photographs of the American South we have, all in one place.
A really big show of the collection is up now at six venues in Athens, Georgia, organized by the University of Georgia's Willson Center for the Humanities and Arts.
The overall title for this multiple-site show is Pictures of Us: Photographs from The Do Good Fund Collection.
For a full list of the six exhibitions, including venues, times and dates the venues are open, and more about this extensive display of the outstanding collection amassed the Do Good Fund, go here.
For those who are not regular readers of this blog, the Do Good Fund is a public charity that has set out to build a museum-quality collection of contemporary Southern photography, including works by both established and emerging photographers.

We all owe a deep debt of gratitude to Alan Rothschild and his colleagues at the Do Good Fund for this extraordinary undertaking.
The work they've collected already is truly exceptional -- the very best of Southern photography.
So these shows are not to be missed, if you are anywhere Athens.
All we can add is, every day, in every way, the Do Good Fund is doing better and better.
