It's safe to say that the last five years JULIAN COX has spent as the curator of photography at the High have been some of the museum's most productive, and arguably its most impressive. Exhibitions such as Harry Callahan: Eleanor in 2007, 2008's Road to Freedom: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1956-1968, and most recently, Signs of Life: Photographs by Peter Sekaer have raised the museum's profile and helped pad its permanent collection. For the "Picturing the South" series, Cox wrangled commissions from photographer Alec Soth that now call the High home. Among the best of the nation's photography scholars, Cox was appointed as Founding Curator of Photography for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and Chief Curator of the de Young Museum in July. We're sad to see him go, but thanks to his diligent efforts at building the museum's permanent collection in truly meaningful ways, we have plenty to remember him by. 1280 Peachtree St. 404-733-4444. www.high.org.
