Jim Hill: Pieces of History

February 1 - March 22

The Marietta Cobb Museum of Art is honored to present an exhibition of artwork by Jim Hill titled Pieces of History. Jim Hill’s distinguished body of work consists of hundreds of “paintings in paper,” or mosaics, which are produced by gluing small triangles of found paper together to create complex and poignant images. During his life and career, Hill has functioned as an artist, historian, teacher, philanthropist, and activist. Hailing from the streets of New York City, Hill built his art and business practice on a humanitarian and biblical calling to care for the most marginalized in society. Hill once operated a homeless shelter in NYC and donated all of his artistic profits to those in need. Hill’s artwork focuses mostly on the trauma and enduring perseverance of humanity, specifically in the communities he was dedicated to helping; many of his creations, however, are idyllic images of friendship, hope, love, and peace.
