Third Thursday is a monthly event when art can be viewed in the evening hours on the third Thursday of the month at seven of Athens’ established venues for visual art. The Georgia Museum of Art and the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia; the Lyndon House Arts Center, GlassCube & Gallery@Hotel Indigo-Athens, Ciné, and The Classic Center in downtown Athens; and Athens Institute for Contemporary Art (ATHICA) in the Chase Park Warehouses near the Boulevard neighborhood will be open from 6 until 9 p.m. on those days unless they are between installations or closed for a holiday or weather emergency.
The seven art establishments will maintain a calendar of their programming at 3Thurs.org. The website will provide links to the venue resources and a Google Calendar of all their exhibitions, receptions and events, such as kids’ events, lectures and gallery talks. Some opening receptions and special features will occur on Third Thursdays, but they will endeavor to prevent conflicts of critical exhibition elements.
