R. A. Miller’s (1912–2006) work have been exhibited in numerous institutions and are in the permanent collection of prestigious museums: The Georgia Museum of Art, Athens – “Lord Love You: Works by R.A. Miller from the Mullis Collection” (2009); Brenau University's Simmons Visual Arts Center – “R.A. Miller: A Tribute” (2006); The High Museum of Art, Atlanta; and the alfresco Folk Art Park at the corner of Ralph McGill Blvd N.E. and Courtland Street N.E., downtown Atlanta, established during the 1996 Summer Olympic Games (Games of the XXVI Olympiad).
All of R. A. Miller's works on paper have rough edges and sides, holes, and unsquare corners as they were procured from salvaged materials. It is typical for them to have nail holes because he tacked them to the side of his house when presented for sale. This one does not have any holes.
