“Benjamin Jones is such an important historical figure in the Atlanta arts community. He is widely collected and known for his paintings, as well as his wall murals,” says MOCA GA President, CEO, and Director Annette Cone-Skelton. “Ben Jones has always had his own voice and vision, and his work reflects a clear sense of purpose. MOCA GA is grateful for his friendship, and honored to have numerous works of his as a part of our permanent collection.”
Jones received a 1994 Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Southern Arts Federation. In 2004, he was the recipient of the prestigious Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award. In 2006, Jones made his international debut at Art London. He returned to London in 2008, as the featured artist in Drawing a Diversion, an exhibition at John Martin Gallery, in conjunction with Master Drawings London.
