An Anniston museum opens a new exhibit featuring sculptures from all over the world. The Berman Museum is now displaying Polished Portraits: The Bronzes of Germaine Berman. The museum held the opening on Friday.
While serving in World War Two, Berman Museum founder Germaine Berman watched as valuable bronze sculptures and art were melted down for scrap metal by both sides in the war. Berman was determined to preserve as many pieces as he could.
Registrar Sabra Gossett says Berman went all over the world looking for treasure and the mystery behind some pieces.
The museum features 32 pieces within the exhibit and 20 pieces in the lobby. Gossett explains what people will experience at the exhibit.
The temporary exhibit will be open until November of next year. The Berman Museum staff invites everyone to enjoy the exhibit during regular business hours. Parental Guidance is suggested due to the nature of some of the artwork.
