Bodies…The Exhibition presents a guided tour through the intricate structures that make up the human body. More than 200 preserved human bodies demonstrate the vital systems, such as the digestive, respiratory, and nervous, the last of which only kicks in during first dates and speeches.
The friendly staff at PatchWerk will graciously introduce you to the beautiful acoustics of Studio 1019, where you will record final vocals or edit your project. A sound master will happily answer any questions you have about the studio. PatchWerk's state-of-the-art facilities have been used to record Annie Lennox, Ludacris, Beyoncé, Young Jeezy, Sting, Snoop Dogg, and many more. And with high-quality CD duplications included, you won't have to spend an entire year performing back-to-back CD burns.
Conveniently located in the Selig Center, across the street from the Center for Puppetry Arts, the Breman Jewish Heritage & Holocaust Museum focuses on educating its visitors on Jewish history, and promoting universal themes like diversity and human dignity. The museum itself is tiny, but comes packed with interesting artifacts and tidbits about Jewish history in Atlanta and beyond. With such interesting pieces on display in the permanent collection, plus a continually flowing stream of exhibits, it’ll likely take several visits to really let the experience sink in. All the more reason to visit the gift shop, which stocks all manner of Jewish literature, holiday gifts and trinkets.
When the Center for Puppetry Arts opened its doors in 1978, Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog were on hand to cut the ribbon. Fittingly, one of its first major exhibitions, The Art of the Muppets in 1981, attracted more than 50,000 attendees. Since then, the center has matured into a multifaceted complex equal parts museum, performance center, and hub for working artists.
Whole World has entertained audiences since 1994, and has been named one of Atlanta's five best comedy clubs by Jezebel magazine. In addition to that, the team of 40-plus members helps train the next generation of improv performers during classes that explore scene building and characterization through exercises and improv games. Besides sessions catered to beginning through advanced improvisers alike, Whole World teaches courses for kids and professional actors tired of having to speak only in iambic pentameter. The actors also happily venture beyond the theatre's walls for private events such as team-building workshops or cocktail parties.
Visiting The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia isn't just about seeing works that have already been deemed important. It's also about discovering what the future of art may look like. That's because the museum showcases the visual works of not only established artists, but also emerging talent throughout the state. By investing so heavily in Georgia's artistic community and making the museum's collections available to the general public, MOCA GA strives to preserve these artists' legacies for the viewing pleasure of present and future generations. The permanent collection currently features over 920 works by more than 250 different artists, including paintings, sculptures, photography, prints, and digital works from the mid 1940s to the present day.
MOCA GA's staff displays many of the pieces from the permanent collection alongside works by artists from around the world, demonstrating how Georgia's artistic community fits into a larger global context. The museum hosts rotating exhibitions throughout the year, and it encourages community engagement by regularly holding artist talks and other public programs.
