"The Kiss" by Auguste Rodin.

With only days left before the works of Auguste Rodin are packed up, North Georgia College & State University is extending the hours of the exhibit "Rodin: The Figure in Bronze."

Presented by the university and the Dahlonega Arts Council, the free exhibit of 24 posthumous original bronze sculptures on loan from Twenty 21 Collection/Gallery Rodin in Atlanta is located in the school’s Library Technology Center.

Auguste Rodin was a master sculptor in human forms and anatomy and his works The Kiss and The Thinker are among some of the best-known works of art in the world.

The Rodin exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. today, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, 1-5 p.m. Saturday, and a special farewell reception will be held from 3:30-5 p.m. Sunday. The exhibit will close for the final time at 8 p.m. Sunday.

An art show featuring the work of local artists who have studied and reflected on the sculptures opened Tuesday. "Reviewing Rodin," curated by Nathan Skinner, an art marketing major at North Georgia, will be on display through Aug. 5. All events are free and open to the public.
