The Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville is offering free admission to those evacuating from Hurricane Florence. Any resident of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia or southeastern counties in Georgia can visit the museum for free through Sept. 19.
Individuals fleeing the hurricane need only to show their driver’s license from those states or counties for free admission through next Wednesday. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday and closed Monday.
The museum is the largest permanent exhibition space for Western art in the country, and is currently hosting the largest exhibition of works by Frederic Remington ever in the South. The exhibition, Treasures from the Frederic Remington Art Museum & Beyond, features more than 60 original pieces of Remington’s work from the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, New York, as well as from private collections and other museums.
For children, the museum offers Sagebrush Ranch, a fun, hands-on, interactive gallery. Organized like a working ranch, Sagebrush Ranch is designed for children 2-12.
The Booth Western Art Museum is at 501 N Museum Dr., Cartersville, 30120. For more information, visit boothmuseum.org or call 770-387-1300.
