The Museum of Arts and Sciences, in partnership with Frames & Arts Unlimited, is delighted to offer a limited-edition print of the Museum’s unofficial mascot, Georgia the Cockatoo, the “Diva of the Museum.”

The print is based on a painting by local artist Mike Brown, who was commissioned by Frames & Arts Unlimited.

Each print of Georgia—numbered and signed by the artist—is matted and finished in a 22” x 19” pewter or walnut frame.

About Georgia The Cockatoo:

Georgia, one of the most popular attractions at the Museum of Arts and Sciences, is a Moluccan Cockatoo. Affectionately called the “Diva of the Museum” because of her larger-than-life personality, she loves to educate and entertain everyone about her wonderful Parrot family.

The Moluccan Cockatoo, also known as Pink-Crested and Salmon-Crested Cockatoo, is one of the largest and most striking members of the cockatoo family, both in appearance and intelligence. The bird is native to the Indonesian archipelago (island chain)—the Moluccas, Maluku or Spice Islands.

Moluccans demand lots of attention and, true to her species, Georgia loves showing off and meeting new visitors. Because of her friendly nature, people all around the Central Georgia area know about this wonderful bird!

Moluccans can live well into their 80s and beyond. The oldest recorded Moluccan Cockatoos were stated to be 80 years at the London Zoo, 85 years at the San Diego Zoo, and 125 years with a private owner in England. Hopefully, Georgia will be dazzling visitors at the Museum of Arts and Sciences for many years to come, because our “Diva” just turned seven years old in 2012.

These collectible prints of Georgia The Cockatoo are being sold exclusively in the Museum Store for a limited time.

A portion of the proceeds goes toward supporting the Museum’s cultural and educational programs.
