Weekend Arts Agenda: Modern Materials at HIGH Museum

Atlanta painter Chris Hammer will be giving a painting workshop at the HIGH today.

The HIGH Museum invites Atlanta to come out of its turkey-induced comas and enjoy a day of art and activities at the museum from noon to 5 p.m. Local artists (like painter Chris Hammer featured above) will be giving workshops all day at the museum, covering mediums like ceramics, photography, illustration and even a ballet ensemble from the Atlanta Ballet Centre. These artists will all focus on discussing how the mediums and materials they use have changed over the years, stop by for an opportunity to meet and speak with talented, local artists all in one place. More art after the jump in this weekend arts agenda.

Jennifer Schwartz Gallery has launched a intriguing new campaign called the Crusade for Collecting, born out of Schwartz's love for art and desire to share it with the public. Through the help of a Kickstarter campaign, Schwartz has purchased a '77 Volkswagen bus that will tour the town, and eventually the country, making art accessible to the masses. The sweetest part, the photographs being displayed will not be sold but given away. People are encouraged to engage in games and conversations with artists for the opportunity to leave with an original piece of art. The VW bus will set up a Pop-up shop at the HIGH today from 1 to 4 p.m., stop by to start your own art collection today.
