On view April 24 through Nov. 29, 2015, “Los Trompos” will create a destination outside the Museum where patrons can enjoy recreation, social interaction, performances, art-making activities and special events co-organized with local partner institutions.
For the unveiling on Friday, April 24, the High invites visitors to opening night festivities from 6 to 9 p.m., which will be free and open to the public and will include a DJ spinning music on the piazza and food and drink for purchase. Admission to the Museum is half-price beginning at 4 p.m. on April 24.
As part of its Friday Night Lates series during the run of “Los Trompos,” the High will present evening programs on the piazza on the first and third Friday of each month. The programs will feature performances, live music and more from Atlanta arts organizations and colleagues at The Woodruff Arts Center (Alliance Theatre, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Arts for Learning). The High will also collaborate with The Institute of Mexican Culture to present family programming on the piazza on Sunday afternoons.
