R.A. Miller,Folk Artist, was from Rabbittown, an unincorporated Georgia community . He is known for his "whirligigs," or metal cutout figures, and drawings, which typically feature animal or human figures and short inspirational messages.  After folk-art dealers and collectors began to purchase Miller's inexpensive whirligigs in large quantities, the artist started to make and sell cutout figures independent of the whirligigs.

   Miller's work has been included in such exhibitions as Outside the Mainstream: Folk Art in Our Time at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta (1988) and Passionate Visions of the American South at the New Orleans Museum of Art in Louisiana (October 1993-January 1994).
