Art Conversations

Looking for more art conversations? Join us in person or online on the first Tuesday of every month for Conversation Pieces.

Through Lines

Museum Galleries | 10:30 and 11:30 a.m.

How do different artworks approach similar ideas in unique ways? In these lively conversations, we will explore two different pieces to connect art across time, geography, identity, and belief.

Through Lines meets at the first artwork location and lasts thirty to forty-five minutes. Please see below for times, artworks, and locations. Stools and assistive listening devices will be available and are highly recommended.  

10:30 a.m.: Tyler Mitchell, Riverside Scene (2021) and Ker-Xavier Roussel, The Sleeping Diana(ca. 1924), Stent Family Wing, Second Level, Tyler Mitchell: Idyllic Space, and Stent Family Wing, Second Level, Gallery 207

Art Making

Open Studio: Photo Transfer Collage

Anne Cox Chambers Wing Lobby | 10 a.m.–12 noon and 2–4 p.m.  

Experiment, play, and exercise your creativity during Open Studio! This informal drop-in program encourages adults of all ages to explore different materials and techniques with guidance from High Museum of Art teaching artists. Materials will be provided, and no prior experience is necessary.  

This month we will explore the technique of photo transfers using solvents. Sourcing from magazines, catalogs, and other printed materials, we will select images that connect to a personal experience or memory. We will then transfer those images onto our collage paper and together with other mixed materials create a unique work of art that commemorates a memory or moment in time. Inspired by works on view in Tyler Mitchell: Idyllic Space, we will explore themes found in the exhibition including family, motherhood, domesticity, rest, and the natural world.   

Mindfulness Workshops

Interested in more mindfulness-based activities? Join us on the third Saturday of every month for Oasis, where we invite visitors to embrace the present moment and use the museum as a space for deep reflection, art making, and movement.
