Starting March 21, The Allure of the Automobile exhibition rolls into town to tell the stories behind 18 iconic automobiles such as Herbie, the first Transformer.
Bring in the family during Studio Spring Break (April 6-10), where kids can drop by the Greene Family Education Center to do some hands-on crafting. There is always some sort of non-robotic family fun going on, so check the schedule for upcoming programs. If you are a soon to be proud owner of an individual membership, check out the Single Mingle event. Meet and converse in a low key setting over cocktails and draw-offs. Admission is $5 for members and includes a drink ticket and entrance into Friday Jazz. You don’t need to be a mingling single to attend Friday Jazz, which takes place the third Friday of every month and features renowned jazz musicians laying down a smooth soundtrack to match the museum’s artful eye candy.
Frommer’s recommends High Museum of Art, and 10Best.com lists it as one of the top attractions in Atlanta: > * The High’s $130-million, three-building expansion truly brought the museum to world-class status. The additions include more gallery space for the museum’s permanent collection, enlarged special-exhibit space, a coffee bar, and a new retail shop. Not to be overshadowed, the original facility – designed by architect Richard Meier and part of the Woodruff Arts Center complex – is itself a work of art. – Frommer’s
Yelpers give High Museum of Art a solid four stars, while Citysearchers and Yahoo! Travelers alike award it a near-perfect 4.5: > * First and foremost let me say the staff was very friendly and willing to help with directions to exhibits, not like some museums where you feel like they’re watching over your shoulder waiting for you to do something wrong. – John D., Yahoo! Travel > * The architectural space is marvelous and the collection is diverse…The collection has something for everyone. – A Yahoo! Contributor, 05/11/08 > * Bringing in collections from the Louvre, works from Di Vinci [sic], Monet, and all the other big boys along with local artists making a splash, the High is a wonderful place to cash in on once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to engage in history and art. – ryansims, Citysearch
