Morehead. “We are proud to be home to this significant collection of photography, which will benefit scholars and visitors from across Georgia and the U.S. and elevate our state’s official museum of art to a new level.” The gift came from three sets of donors: • J. Patrick (Pat) and Patricia A. Kennedy, of San Leandro, California, who donated 2,884
