Georgia: High Museum of Art

While in Atlanta for the 70th Annual STC Summit, I had the chance to visit the High Museum of Art. On the second Sunday of each month, the Museum offers free admission for all visitors, and it just happened to be the second Sunday in May.

My friend Jackie D and I took the MARTA to the Arts Center stop and went in at our scheduled reservation time.

All photos were taken using my iPhone 14 Pro Max with the 1.33 anamorphic lens (blue flare) from Moment using the Moment app. The Rodin sculpture “The Shade” seen in the photos below was part of a memorial.

I did check their photography policy before taking any photos. Here are a few photos from the exhibits viewed.

When I found out there was a photography exhibit at the museum, that was our first destination.

It was the last week of the Joseph Stella exhibit at the museum, so we made sure to visit the exhibit after the photography exhibit.

Do you go to local museums when you attend a conference? Why or why not?
