Paul Cadmus’ Playground, often characterized as a visual study of adolescent sexuality, is much more. Provocative, clever, socio-political: it is equally a response to the uncertainties and exigencies of Post WW II America. A native of Sprott, Ala., William Underwood Eiland is the director of the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia. He has a bachelor’s degree from Birmingham-Southern College and master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Virginia. Eiland has edited and contributed to more than 60 publications. He has served on the boards of the American Alliance of Museums, the Southeastern Museums Conference and the Georgia Association of Museums and Galleries; was a trustee of the Association of Art Museum Directors; and was chairman of the Arts and Artifacts Indemnity Advisory Panel for the National Endowment for the Arts. Since 2013 he has been a trustee of the International Council of Museums. Among his many honors, Eiland recently received the American Alliance of Museums Distinguished Service Award, in recognition of his contributions to the field on a national level.
