One of seven historic paintings hang in the lobby of the Georgia Department of Agriculture as a visitor checks into the security desk Tuesday, Dec. 28, 2010, in Atlanta. The incoming Georgia agriculture commissioner wants to remove the paintings including one depicting idealized versions of slavery and put them into storage when he takes office next month. Those pastel paintings have hung in the lobby of a state building for half a century without causing a stir. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
