We're All Stuffed Rocks
Barbara Hanger graduated magna cum laude in 1976 from the University of Georgia, where she earned a scholarship from the Lamar Dodd School of Art to study in Italy for a semester. She also holds a master's degree from Ohio University in Athens.
Hanger has served as an artist-in-residence for the Atlanta Arts Alliance, the Georgia Council for the Arts and Humanities, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Ohio Arts Council.
