Experience a new Friday night vibe during Oasis at the High

On the second Friday of each month, tour the galleries without the crowds, drop in for a yoga class, or enjoy a glass of wine and a quiet conversation with interesting people. Meet at the High to discover a welcoming community centered on art, presence, and mindfulness.

Quiet Time in the Galleries

Explore the museum’s collection galleries after hours. Plus, get access to special exhibitions like Hear Me Now: The Black Potters of Old Edgefield, South Carolina.

Seeing with Spirit

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

This month’s discussion features educator and artist-ethnographer Dr. Arturo Lindsay, whose work and practice highlights African spiritual and aesthetic retentions, rediscoveries, and reinventions in America. Living and working between Atlanta and Portobello, Panama, Dr. Lindsay centers his research on connections between his spiritual traditions of Santería, Catholicism, and Yoruba over vast distances. Dr. Lindsay is Professor Emeritus and former chair of the Department of Art and Art History at Spelman College in Atlanta. He holds a doctor of arts from New York University, a master of fine arts in painting from the University of Massachusetts, and a bachelor of arts from Central Connecticut State College.

Arturo will cover Bamgboye of Odo-Owa, Nigerian, Ekiti (ca. 1893–1978).

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

In-Gallery Movement

Immerse yourself in peaceful sounds as you rediscover our Modern and Contemporary Art galleries. This month features ImmerseATL Collective. In this movement and meditation workshop, participants are guided with intuitive movement prompts, breath work, and visualization to connect deeply with themselves, the art, and each other. There are no steps to learn, and no experience is required; all that is needed is desire for more expressive and reverent ways to be in one’s body. ImmerseATL Collective serves ImmerseATL Alumni in the next phase of their journey as working professionals through performance opportunities and choreographic residencies that support the development of new work. For more information, visit immerseatl.com.

Labyrinth

This labyrinth, designed by artist Steven L. Anderson, may look like a maze, but it is not meant to confuse or frustrate you. The labyrinth is a nearly 4,000-year-old design that has been found in a variety of forms and cultures. We invite you to use this labyrinth for walking meditation and contemplation.
