MY TRIP TO THE HIGH MUSUEM ATLANTA

May 23, 2014 Hello! How’s everyone’s Friday? Good I hope. I’m enjoying my four-day weekend. During the second Saturday (my birthday) in April, my mom and I went to Atlanta over the weekend. We visited the High Museum of Art and it was really impressive! The High Museum has so many exhibitions, activities…..One of the exhibitions that I wanted to see was Go West! Art of the American Frontier From the Buffalo Center of the West, at the Wieland Pavilion second level, which was held November 3, 2013 till April 13, 2014. It was everything I thought it would be. Each painting, artifacts were displayed with the attention they all deserved. It was like a treasure trove of a once bygone era….sounds corny I know, but it was. I wanted to jump into those paintings just to get a glimpse of it all, just soak it all in! We went to a few other exhibitions as well like, Splendor: The Work of Jim Waters, Abelardo Morell: The Universe Next Door, African Mask/Masquerade: More Than Meets the Eye, …
