The past couple of years I’ve had the pleasure to photograph a lot of events for Atlanta’s High Museum of Art. As a self described art geek, this is always a treat. I’ve been a scholar of art and an artist myself for as long as I can remember. Most of my earliest memories involve drawing and painting. I remember crawling under my bed, and drawing on the wall as a toddler. I remember my parents not getting mad because they thought it was quite good. Ha! As an innately creative being it is a true blessing to have been raised in an art-loving, creative home. My artistic endeavors and studies were always REALLY encouraged. I cannot image what my life would look like had that not been the case. Photographing this event at The High Museum was of particular interest to me. I have been a tremendous fan of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera for many, many years. Their work is so important so seeing this exhibit multiple times was a treat. Being ALONE with it for a time was one of the highlights of my year. This was one of the previews for the patrons of the museum. It was a fabulous event.
The High Museum of Art is such a fantastic thing for the city of Atlanta. The guest curators and exhibits that have been streaming through are impressive. If you have not visited in a while….go. Go ahead and become a member so that you can enjoy it whenever you like. Say hello to my favorite Rothko for me while you are there!
