YOUR CHANCE TO PLAY HIGH MUSEUM CURATOR
At the High Museum of Art’s annual Collectors Evening fundraiser, art lovers have a special opportunity to give their opinions on a number of works that the museum is considering adding to its permanent collection.
Held this year at the Ritz- Carlton in Buckhead on Oct. 26, the evening includes a cocktail hour, one-on-one talks with the High’s curators, presentations of the works of art and a sit-down dinner. Then, guests cast their ballots for their favorite potential acquisitions. Based on the works that receive the most votes, the High will purchase a select number of pieces.
Last year, the museum acquired several standouts, including a photograph by Brazilian-American artist Vik Muniz and a hand-tooled leatherwork by Georgia artist Winfred Rembert.
Don’t miss the chance to witness a major moment in the Atlanta art world and speak your mind about which masterpieces the High adds to its collection.
