Events: Conversations with Contemporary Artists: KAWS
7:00 pm –8:00 pm
Memorial Arts Building
High Museum of Art Campus
New York-based artist KAWS will join Michael Rooks, Wieland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, to discuss his current exhibition at the High, KAWS PRINTS.
The exhibition explores the artist’s deep and sustained involvement with graphic art and printmaking. The work of KAWS is known by millions around the world, in part, because he has embraced the democratic principle of making art accessible by producing editioned prints, multiples, toys, and other types of art-related merchandise, in the tradition of American pop artists like Andy Warhol and Keith Haring.

The High Museum strives to make its programs accessible for everyone. Sign language interpretation is provided for all talks.
Please Note: This event takes place outside of regular Museum hours and does not include gallery access.
Health and Safety
The High Museum of Art’s top priority is the safety of our community, visitors, artists, and staff members. In consultation with medical and public health experts, the High is implementing a mandatory vaccine and mask policy for all talks and lectures. Audience members will be asked to show proof of vaccination, and masks are required. Audience members who are not vaccinated must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within seventy-two hours of the talk’s start time or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within six hours of the talk’s start time. Proof of vaccination (or negative test result) must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination (or test). Audience members can show proof of vaccination by presenting a physical vaccination card, a photo of a physical card, or a digital confirmation of vaccination. A free resource in the Atlanta for vaccinations or COVID-19 testing is Viral Solutions.
