We went to THE HIGH MUSEUM in Atlanta, yesterday, to see the last day of the KIKI SMITH exhibit. In the courtyard outside the museum entrance was a giant sculpture of "COMPANION" - the signature character created by street artist KAWS.
It was busy enough at the museum that we were able to sneak a few photos in the galleries...
They had some cool AFRICAN ART in their collection...
We took the elevator up to view the PICASSO TO WARHOL exhibit again (we saw it back in October). On the back of the elevator there was this poster showing a couple of brightly coiffed HIPSTERS (I'm guessing...SCAD students?) enjoying an amorphous purple thing:
We really liked the room with these giant ALEX KATZ pieces:
