The High Museum of Art - Atlanta, GA

I spent a few days in Atlanta last month & went to see the High Museum of Art with my mother. The High Museum is made up of three buildings which house different parts of the museum’s collection along with special exhibitions. My mother & I saw the Henri Cartier-Bresson photo exhibition (which I missed at MoMA last year), a Toulouse-Lautrec show, the modern/contemporary collection, the African Collection, & the prints & drawings gallery. There is a fantastic Alexander Calder mobile on the lawn adjacent to the museum that can be viewed from the road. We went on a grey day but in my mind that added to the experience. The buildings were very modern and open, and the Robinson Atrium made me a bit homesick for the Guggenheim.
