OLLI Partners with Booth Western Art Museum

OLLI Partners with Booth Western Art Museum

Expanding OLLI’s community outreach will offer more people opportunities they may not have. Just ask Dick Harp, our OLLI director. He shares an exciting announcement about a new program expansion.

As many of you may know, we’ve been seeking ways to connect with individuals in the surrounding communities of Kennesaw in an effort to expand our outreach. With that said, it gives me great pleasure to announce our new partnership with the Booth Western Art Museum — an Affiliate to the Smithsonian Institution. The museum is widely known for its Presidential gallery, Civil War art gallery, and Sagebrush Ranch, an interactive children’s gallery.

America’s Top Western Museum
Known as the best western museum in America, the venue is located in Cartersville and is the second largest art museum in Georgia. In fact, it covers 120,000 square feet and is the only museum of its kind in the Southeast. It also houses the largest permanent exhibition space for Western American art in the country.
