In conjunction with the exhibition Created Beasts: Sculpture by Ulysses Davis, Telfair Museums will present two short films about Davis with discussion to follow. Telfair will screen a segment from the film Missing Pieces: Georgia Folk Art (1977), which includes a rare interview with Ulysses Davis and glimpse inside the barbershop where he created his work. The museum will also screen the documentary short The Vision of Ulysses Davis (2019, 10 minutes).
Afterwards, a conversation on Davis’ art and legacy will take place with artists Richard Law, Willis Hakim Jones, and members of Ulysses Davis’ family.
Missing Pieces is screened courtesy the Georgia Council for the Arts.
