In Atlanta you can go to the Botanical Gardens and pay $18.95 a head for adults and a parking fee. Or you can go to the State Botanical Garden of Georgia in Athens and pay nothing, except gas. There we even got to see the sight of a quinceañera with a lovely young lady, and her grooms and I would guess her Dad with her.
Back in the car you can go to the Zoo, or do what I did, the Georgia Museum of Art on the campus of the University of Georgia. It is the official state museum of art, and is free. So you could stay in Atlanta and pay the High Museum about $19.50, or go here. I was quite surprised, although not an extensive collection, there are several major artists, some good limner work, and a great show on Mexican graphic artists.
The following work was created under El Taller de Gráfica Popular (The People’s Graphics Workshop) , both educational and of high artistic qualities. This was established in the mid-30s of the last century, which based its themes upon revolutionary thinking. This show which covered enough works to appear in 4 galleries was thoughtful, exceptionally well done, and of high quality.
These little museums sometimes surprise me, as they hold pieces rarely seen. Some people would say it is rare, because the pieces are not very good. I think that idea is baloney and should be shoved between two whitebread slices. Any works of any artist, give us more information and depth, about their practices, beliefs and ideas. Thanks Georgia Museum of Art for a most enjoyable day.
