This class is a follow-up to the IRON HORSE screening. In 1962, the Georgia Center's film production unit made PEGASUS WITHOUT WINGS, an educational film about the place of controversial art in our communities. The film was part of their "Basic Issues of Man" series for National Educational Television (NET), the predecessor of PBS. It fictionalizes, for teaching purposes, the 1954 "Iron Horse" sculpture placement and controversy. Carissa DiCindio, the Georgia Museum of Art's Curator of Education, will lead a discussion.

This class will be held at the Special Collections Library. Location details will be provided to class participants.
