Fine arts might not be the focus of New Year's Eve parties this year, but we're pretty sure you'll be able to find some to appreciate from our guide to events on Friday. Your last chance to see some of 2010's exciting exhibitions ends in the first days of 2011. Details after the jump.
Our guide to New Year's Eve events in Atlanta doesn't overlap much with the sort of visual arts that we try to cover in the Weekend Arts Agenda, but that doesn't mean there won't be any fine arts to appreciate on Friday night. Restaurant Eugene's foodie adaptations of books returns with a dinner based around Ian Fleming's James Bond novels, which should be an artful evening if you're a high roller. A more affordable party can be found at the Clermont Lounge, where one can appreciate the performing arts of Blondie and other Atlanta icons. Check our full list of events.
Your last chance to catch a few great exhibitions from 2010 lands on the first day of 2011. The December Show at Whitespace includes a fantastic selection of work by locals like Ann-Marie Manker, Whitney Stansell, and Jonathan Bouknight. Romance 2020, a solo show of work by Marcus Kenney that surpasses even the typically high standards of Marcia Wood Gallery, closes after Saturday as well.
The High Museum wraps up Titian & The Golden Age of Venetian Painting, along with the Dalí exhibition next weekend, to make room for a new year of programming. The month of January will mostly be quiet while the next exhibitions get installed, but we're anxiously looking forward to a major exhibition of Henri Cartier Bresson organized by MoMA that will (nearly) coincide with an exhibition of photographs from the museum's permanent collection. An exhibition of works on paper from the Dorothy and Herb Vogel Collection also looks promising.
Mo gibs muh 'dat.
