Mark your calendar for a celebration of Lifelong Learning at the High!
Join us for a day of celebration, including free admission for all visitors ages fifty and over, with guided tours of Joseph Stella: Visionary Nature and Monir Farmanfarmaian: A Mirror Garden, in-gallery conversations featuring works from the collection, drop-in art-making workshops, pop-up performances featuring the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and more!
Through its Creative Aging and Lifelong Learning initiative, the High invites curious adults to come together to explore art and ideas, exercise their creativity, make new friends, find joy and inspiration, and continue to learn and grow.
Visitors ages 50+ can reserve up to 4 tickets using the red ticket button above. Limited pre-paid parking is available and can be added to your chart during check-out.
There is limited capacity for lifelong-learning, aging-services, and/or other community-based organizations that serve individuals fifty and over to book a free docent-led tour or self-guided visit during the Celebration.
Docent-led tours are informal discussions that highlight a selection of artworks from the High Museum’s collection. They typically last 60 minutes and explore 4-5 artworks through interactive conversation. To submit a request for a docent-led tour, please complete the Docent-Led Tour Request Form.
Self-guided visits allow groups from community-based organizations to register as a single entity, check in together and move through the museum at their own pace. Museum staff will assist with travel logistics, greet you upon arrival, and share more information about the drop-in programming happening throughout the day. In order to qualify for a self-guided visit, your group must have 8 or more people. To submit a request for a self-guided visit, please complete the Self-Guided Visit Request Form.
Advances in science and public health mean that Americans are living longer, healthier lives, and Atlanta is one of the most rapidly aging cities in the United States. Through our Lifelong Learning initiative, we aim to serve as a catalyst for lifelong learners to explore their creativity, find new social connections, and continue to learn and grow. With support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the High is working to pilot new programs for older adults and aging-services organizations, build institutional capacity to better serve older visitors, further our audience research and share our findings, and spearhead the formation of a professional network of arts and health professionals to advance this work locally and nationally.
These programs are made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
