Hey everybody 😀

This past week we had a sneak peak at 4 new exhibits at the High Museum of Art:

RISE UP: Hale Woodruff’s Murals at Talladega College
Picturing New York: Photographs from The Museum of Modern Art
Picturing the South
Revisiting the South: Richard Misrach’s Cancer Alley

All of these exhibits will be on display until September 2nd so you have plenty of time to check them out 🙂 RISE UP is a collection of paintings visually describing the way the Amistad slaves “rose up” against their masters aboard the ship. My favorites were the oil on canvas paintings because they are so large and the colors are EXTREMELY bright. The above picture is an example of such oil on canvas.

Picturing New York features 150 photographs of New York celebrating its excitement, beauty, and individuality from other metropolitan cities. The works featured were taken by some of the most important photographers of our time.

Picturing the South presents work by 3 contemporary artists: Martin Parr, Kael Alford, and Shane Lavalette.

Revisiting the South: Richard Misrach’s Cancer Alley is a collection of photos taken around Louisiana by different oil factories and putting their pollution on display (please forgive us for the quality, there were bright lights EVERYWHERE in this area).

So on top of our many festivals, concerts, park options, shopping options, and tourist attractions make sure you take a look at these 4 new exhibits at the High Museum of Art. Remember, just like Atlanta, there’s always something going on at the High! Check their calendar regularly! 🙂
