Mondays are generally "industry holidays" for the arts. Today is an anomaly, of course, thanks to the High's discounted "Lunch Rush" tickets for its final week of The First Emperor (the High's normally closed on Monday). But if you've already seen that show and are looking for another quick (and free) weekday escape, check out the often-overlooked marvel at Georgia Tech — the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum, open Mon.-Fri, 9-5 p.m., rain or shine.

From the Paper Museum, on its latest exhibition:

The Museum is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by Atlanta artists Jiha Moon and Nate Moore. Merging classic Eastern paper techniques with contemporary perspectives, their works re-examine the ongoing dialogue between tradition and modernity. As Moon and Moore embrace the elegant spirit and precision of Asian scroll painting or origami, they do so with attitude. What the artists share, is a comfort with the past and the confidence to present their engagement with its attractions.

Jiha Moon/Nate Moore: Recent Works continues through May 22.

If you live on the South Side, or if you happen to catch a flight this month, don't underestimate exhibitions at Hartsfield's Atrium Gallery. Steve Tanner's website has several photos of his current airport show, Hidden Nature, a body of work exploring nature's "mysterious enchantment" inspired, initially, by a day "paddling through a swamp of old-growth cypress trees." Hidden Nature remains on view through April 29.
