Mrs. Pope's Museum

Laura Pope Forrester, a self-taught artist from south Georgia, created one of the state's first outdoor art environments during the 1940s and 1950s. Her concrete figures, depicting such historical and literary personages as Nancy Hart and Scarlett O'Hara, came to be known as "Mrs. Pope's Museum." Photograph by Marty Stupich.
