In the fall of 2013, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia, issued an initial press release describing the major retrospective (pdf) they were developing titled Wynn Bullock: Revelations. On October 19, 2013, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution published an article written by Howard Pousner (pdf) on the future show. Several other publications subsequently shared brief announcements of the planned show, including The New York Times.

During the week of opening festivities for Revelations that took place in early summer 2014, Wynn's daughters Barbara Bullock-Wilson and Lynne Harrington-Bullock participated in press and radio interviews, along with exhibition curator Brett Abbott. They also led a docent training session for more than 40 enthusiastic volunteers and enjoyed several one-on-one conversations about Wynn's work with interested staff members and security personnel.
