D.F. Douglass High School - Montezuma Georgia Metal Print
This Montezuma Georgia metal print features D.F. Douglass High School which was in operation from 1958 through 1998. My late father, Charlie Tisdale, was among those who taught and coached at the school for a number of years. In fact, a lot of my childhood was spent there when the teams he worked with practiced, etc. When I recently saw the condition of the old school building and realized it might not be around a lot longer, it motivated me to try to depict it more or less as I remembered it from years past.
D.F. Douglass High School was named for Dennis Fulton Douglass, a prominent African American educator born to parents who were slaves in Augusta in 1860. After college he held a number of jobs centered around writing and publishing with the goal of improving the lives of other African Americans. Ultimately he settled in Montezuma as principal of the Montezuma Public School in 1906. He passed in 1929 but when the new school opened in 1958, his contribution was remembered and it was named in his honor. I am told that when D.F. Douglass closed in 1998, it was the last "all black" school in Georgia.

Metal prints are a contemporary and stylish choice that will arrive at your door ready to hang.
The artwork is printed on a 1/16" thick sheet of aluminum that is then mounted on a 3/4" thick wooden frame. The wooden frame is recessed from the edge of the print giving the appearance of a thin high-gloss metal print that appears to be offset from your wall.
Each metal print is made to your order and printed using archival quality materials that should last a lifetime. Metal prints take 10 to 15 business days to produce and are shipped directly to you in sturdy packaging.
The only decision you will have to make when ordering your metal print is how large you would like it to be.
