Our latest rotating exhibit, “Patriot Expressions: Ulysses Davis’ Presidents from The Beach Institute and Works from the Carter Library” is still on display at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum and will be through Sunday, April 21, 2013. Viewing the exhibit is free with paid admission to the Museum

Ulysses Davis was a barber in West Savannah, Georgia. He cut hair for nearly fifty years and when business was slow at his barbershop, Davis whittled and carved wooden sculptures, including all of the U.S. Presidents through George H.W. Bush. The Carter Presidential Museum is proud to host this wonderful collection of busts of the Presidents, along with works in the Museum’s own collection.

We invite those of you in or near the Atlanta area to pay us a visit, especially while this delightful exhibit is still here! Directions to the Museum are available online.
