December Oasis

December 8, 2023 | 6–9 p.m.
Location: High Museum of Art







Embrace the present moment during Oasis at the High.

On the second Friday of each month, flow in yoga, practice art making, and reflect deeply with works of art. Enjoy zero-proof beverages or sip a glass of wine. Come to the Museum after hours and cultivate a community centered on art, presence, and contemplative practice.

Quiet Time in the Galleries

Explore the museum’s collection galleries after hours. Plus, get access to special exhibitions like In the City of Light: Paris, 1850–1920, A Long Arc: Photography and the American South since 1845, Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature, and Sonya Clark: We Are Each Other.

Oasis @ The High


Immerse yourself in peaceful sounds as you rediscover our Modern and Contemporary Art gallery.

Okorie “OkCello” Johnson is an American cellist-songwriter best known for his live sound looping, improvisation, and storytelling. His music explores the intersections of African diasporic melodies and narratives of people’s perceptions and assumptions about classical and European characteristics of the cello. In September 2022, OkCello presented a sound installation at the Democratic Republic of the Congo Biennale titled Vessel of Breath, a meditative cello composition incorporating harvested sound, collaborative compositions, and community interviews.

Drop-in sessions will take place in our Modern and Contemporary Art galleries on the Skyway level at 6:20, 7, and 8 p.m.

Seeing with Spirit

Join us for a casual, thoughtful conversation connecting art and spiritual practice.

This month’s discussion will  feature Courtney Brooks, Gallery Coordinator of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta’s Pulgram Gallery. Respecting and drawing from Islam, Judaism, Yorba, and Unitarian Universalism beliefs, Brooks believes it is imperative to be open and loving to others who worship differently than you. Her practice includes prayer, meditation, and study of Bible scriptures and teachings from the I Ching, or Book of Changes. In her work as gallery coordinator, she holds quarterly sermons and curates exhibitions and programs aligned with spiritual concepts. The most recent group exhibition, The Deep, explores each artist’s spiritual journey and the inspiration needed to articulate their experiences through art

Join the conversation at 7 and 8:15 p.m.
