Atlanta Artist Lucy Luckovich Challenges Digital Objectification of Women at Marietta Cobb Museum ExhibitSource: Google Street View

Art lovers in Marietta are in for a treat as the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art gears up to showcase "Initial Object," an engaging solo exhibition by Lucy Luckovich. The Atlanta-based artist is taking on the digital world's effects on the perception of women, through a collection of paintings that delve into the theme of female objectification in our tech-driven society. Marietta Cobb Museum of Art will host the exhibition starting from April 6 until June 16, according to an announcement on the city's website.

The show features traditional techniques but sparks a modern dialogue where cherries, chains, and pearls play a crucial part in each piece, representing the reduction of the feminine to mere objects. Luckovich's art seeks to confront how the concept of watching has evolved, morphing woman into something watched, transforming a girl, a body into an "Initial Object." The Marietta Cobb Museum of Art invites visitors to see beyond the surface in this provocative display, with an opening reception scheduled for Saturday, April 6, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Per the city's notice, admission is free for members, with a $10 fee for non-member guests, which can be paid at the door.

In an effort to deepen the exploration of the exhibition's themes, the museum has also scheduled a free artist talk. On Sunday, May 19, at 2:00pm, attendees will have the unique opportunity to engage with Lucy Luckovich and gain insight into the creative process behind her works. The talk offers a platform for discussions around the implications of digital age objectification and artistic resistance.

The Marietta Cobb Museum of Art, nestled at 30 Atlanta Street SE Marietta, GA 30060, serves as a cultural beacon with a mission to enrich the community through art. As demonstrated by the forthcoming Lucy Luckovich exhibit, it continues to challenge and inspire its audience.
