Students, faculty, staff, and friends entered the uncommon permanent collection of the Spelman Museum of Fine Art and chose 50 pieces to display as Multiple Choice: Perspectives on the Spelman College Collection. The resulting exhibit includes the responses from the lucky 50 - written and recorded - alongside works ranging from paintings and prints to sculpture and ethnographic artifacts. This is the inaugural weekend of the exhibit, which opened with a reception last night and will run through May 18.

Today is the last day to see Shadow Puppets: Traces of New Documentary Practices, a photo and video exhibit with a cultural-criticism bent at the GSU Welch School Galleries.

Today is also the last day to see the Ridley Howard Exhibition: "Conversations with Albers," at the Trois Gallery of SCAD Atlanta.
On Saturday, Day Glow Night Mare closes at Beep Beep Gallery. The neo-psychedelic group show bows out the same day a new group exhibition comes on the scene. ABV Gallery's Born and Bred features work from 22 artists inspired by Americana. ABV will hold an opening reception from 7 to 11 p.m.
For some perspective on the new exhibit at ABV, attend a lecture on "Paul T. Frankl and the Modern American Design" at the High, Saturday at 2 p.m. Active from the 1920s through the 1950s, Frankl influenced the creation of a uniquely American aesthetic.

Children's activities run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. as a bonus.
Sunday is the last day to view the drawings of Atlanta artist Susan Cofer at the High. Cofer's work evokes the embryonic and the cosmic at once - quite a feat in pencil on paper.
