ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Museum of Art celebrated the opening of a new native American exhibit Thursday as it works to attract bigger and better exhibits.

The exhibit focuses on Creek, Seminole, and Cherokee tribal leaders from west Georgia and Alabama.

The museum is part of the new Georgia Art Museum partnership with five other museums in the state including the High in Atlanta.

A curator from there attended the opening in Albany.

"The partnership really allows the museums opportunities to work together," said High Museum Curator, Stephanie Heydt. "This is the first exhibition that's come out of this partnership and I'm really thrilled about." 

The Indian Gallery exhibit will run through January 21st. It's free to get in Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 to 5:00 p.m.
