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.

Belly dancers wend sinuously through Imperial Fez?s dimly lit main dining room. On Wednesday, the belly dancers give over the floor to the searing showmanship of fire dancers. Diners gaze at the spectacle through burbles of sweetly scented smoke from table-top hookahs on the patio and in the Casablanca Lounge, which they can order in a flavor of their choice to compliment meals. Two live shows at the patio and lounge are held at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. While nightly entertainment draws diners? attentions, the main attraction at Imperial Fez is chef Rafih Benjelloun?s native Moroccan cuisine, which guests devour by the fingerful. Benjelloun seals the flavors of cumin and cilantro into baked legs of lamb and infuses mountains of couscous with the flavors of apricot, raisin, and sweet onions. Embroidered cushions for seating complete the authenticity of guests? Moroccan dining experience, preventing them from having to build an indoor campfire to justify sitting on the floor.

According to Art By The Glazz, 95% of the people at their events have never painted in their life—or at least not since elementary school. But that doesn't matter. The local artists that run Art By The Glazz's public and private events believe that every person has the potential to create art, they just need a little support and a friendly atmosphere. To that end, these painting experts travel to various locations throughout the country and host regular painting parties. They play music and provide all the art supplies, including canvases, acrylic paints, brushes, and easels. In adult sessions, participants can get their juices flowing with a glass of complimentary wine. It takes three hours for the guide to lead his or her group through the creation of each session's painting. Regardless of how the paintings turn out, the goal is that everyone has a good time, whether they're spending a romantic date-night away from home, getting to know co-workers in a team-building workshop, or trying to look at a bowl of bananas from a new angle.
