Scheduled for October 21-23, 2011 at the Emory University Center for Ethics this workshop will be facilitated by artists Dread Scott, Blithe Riley, Steve Lambert and Brad Lichtenstein (all from NYC and Detroit). The workshop is by artists and for artists and has been designed to create strategies for the individual artist’s career, bringing success as he or she defines it.
WonderRoot, Alternate ROOTS and the Emory Center for Ethics are pleased to offer this professional development program for Atlanta artists at a time when web-based media is evolving rapidly.
Applications are open and will be accepted through Sept. 15. 24 participants will be chosen for the seminar to be held at Emory.

Renowned American artist Alex Katz has given the Museum a painting titled “Twilight” (1998), which is joined by the High’s recent purchases of Katz’s “Winter Landscape 2” (2007) and “Untitled” (2009), a large-scale, mirror-polished steel sculpture by Anish Kapoor. The two new Katz acquisitions have been installed in the Museum, along with two other large-scale paintings by Katz, “Dawn 3” (1995) and “Meadow” (1997), which are on long-term loan from the artist. The four monumental paintings were installed together to establish a monographic gallery dedicated to Katz in the Wieland Pavilion’s skyway galleries, joining other monographic installations by Ellsworth Kelly and Gerhard Richter.
