ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The art museum at the University of Georgia plans to host an exhibition featuring works that span 200 years of American art.

The exhibition, “Picturing America: Signature Works from the Westmoreland Museum of American Art,” is set to run from June 14 to Aug. 24 at the Georgia Museum of Art.

Curator Laura Valeri says the exhibition brings together paintings and sculpture ranging from colonial times through the mid-20th century. It will place particular emphasis on portraits, landscapes and still-lifes.

The 56 works in the exhibition include oil and tempera paintings and bronze sculptures.

Valeri says she wants to avoid labels on gallery walls for the exhibition and hopes to use iPads instead. Visitors would be able to check them out for free from security guards.
