In 1956, George Beattie, an Atlanta-based artist, painted a series of eight murals that hung at the Georgia Department of Agriculture’s building in downtown Atlanta until 2011. The four that are on display here address the state’s history of agriculture, beginning with a representation of the American Indians who originally lived in the region and including two that address slavery.
