The High, now in its second year of partnership with the Louvre Museum, debuts a stunning collection of more than 70 masterpieces from the Louvre’s Egyptian, Near Eastern and Greco-Roman antiquities collection. Other Louvre Atlanta exhibits include antiquities Empress Josephine Bonaparte collected in the 1800s.
Also on display is “Inspiring Impressionism,” an exhibit exploring the effect 17th century old masters such as Titian, Rubens and Fragonard had on 19th century French Impressionists such as Monet, Cézanne and Degas. “Harry Callahan: Eleanor,” which opened last month, is a collection of 125 portraits the artist took of his wife between the 1940s and 1960s.
This month’s special events include live music at Sifly Piazza every Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m., “Toddler Thursdays” from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Greene Family Education Center, “Art in the City” nights every Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m., and Friday Jazz night on Oct. 19 from 5 to 10 p.m. For more information, visit high.org .
