Thursday is a monthly event when art can be viewed in the evening hours on the
third Thursday of the month at six 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 and Ciné 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
six 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.
