To commemorate the Brooks centennial, we are launching the Cloar Circle, a group of donors at the $1,000 level who wish to celebrate one of the South’s most famous painters and a perennial Brooks favorite, Carroll Cloar.
Join now and be the first to see the museum’s new Carrol Cloar Gallery at the opening on Friday, September 23 at 5:30 pm.
