Origins Map Project - Place your pin!

The artworks held in public trust at Zuckerman Museum of Art were made by artists who come from many different places across the country and the world. The places of birth of the artists represented in A Peculiar Proximity to Spiritual Mysteries span three continents! A map of the world installed of the wall of the Pavilion plots those origins. We want to plot your place of origin, too!

We invite the KSU campus community and guests to register your place of birth to be added as a pin on our Origins Map.

We live in an age when approximately 1 person out of every 30 is an immigrant. The vast majority of American citizens have roots in other parts of the world. Our ‘melting pot’ continues to connect people from distant cultures and walks of life. The Zuckerman Museum of Art celebrates the strength of our diverse Kennesaw State University!


Drawing in the galleryDrawing in the Gallery IS ON HIATUS!

Time: Temporarily paused, usually Thursdays from 6:00 to 8:00 pm
Location: Zuckerman Museum of Art

Are you looking for more opportunities to practice your observational drawing skills? Or perhaps you would like to try drawing from life for the first time without enrolling in a costly course? Please join us on Thursday nights starting on September 10th for an opportunity to draw from life!

Each week we will rotate the drawing location in our galleries and the subject of the program between a clothed model, nude model, and objects from our collection. This program is a bring-your-own material event – pencil and paper only. The museum will provide drawing boards to participants upon request.


We appreciate all the love that has been demonstrated for Drawing in the Gallery this past semester! It is wonderful to see so many people practicing their drawing skills at the ZMA! We look forward to hosting this program again on Thursday nights in the spring semester, starting January 28, 2021. Check back for an updated schedule!

For our guests' safety, extensive cleaning protocols have been implemented. Please be aware of the following new policies and procedures for our Drawing in the Gallery program series:

  • Masks are required at all times in the ZMA.
  • We will now limit the number of participants at each Drawing in the Gallery event to 10 visitors.
  • Reservations ensure available seating as space is limited.
  • Guests have the option of signing up one or both of our 1-hour drawing blocks.
  • Seating will be provided to visitors at a safe distance from fellow participants.
  • We ask each visitor to remain in their selected seat and ask a staff member to assist with the movement of the seat if you wish to relocate during the drawing session.
  • We ask that all non-cohabitating patrons maintain a 6' social distance at all times.
  • We ask that all patrons follow the suggested traffic pattern as they move through the ZMA.
  • Hand sanitizing stations can be found at the entrances to the Museum and the entrance to both galleries.
  • Patrons without reservations are welcome but will gain access to our space on a first-come, first-served basis determined by the Museum's maximum capacity.
