A rainy day in metro Atlanta is the perfect day to escape to the world of turn-of-the-century Paris.
Currently on display at the High Museum of Art in midtown are the works of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. His prints and lithographs serve as the centerpiece of an exhibition that also features sculptures from the seventeenth through early twentieth centuries by such artists as Cordier and Dalou.
Also featured at the High are the works of about a dozen young Lovett School artists from Smyrna, Vinings and Mableton. Through March 24, student artwork from grades K through 12 is on display as part of the school’s new academic affiliate program with the museum.
The three-year collaboration allows for unique access to the many resources of the High, such as special exhibitions, collections, programs, and museum staff, which further integrates visual arts into Lovett’s curricula.
The artwork, which has been featured since Jan. 25, comes from 63 Lovett students, 13 who live in the Smyrna/Vinings/Mableton area.
They include, Alina Buckley, Mableton, 5th grade; Laine Barnwell, Vinings, 2nd; Jamie Harwood, Vinings, 12th; Sarah Herbert, Vinings, 12th; Gabriella Janis, Mableton, kindergarten.
Also, Kris Jordan, Smyrna, kindergarten; Colin Kelly, Smyrna, kindergarten; Sydney Lawings, Vinings, 10th; Carly Lide, Vinings, 12th; Maddie Martin, Vinings, 11th grade; Margaret Millians, Vinings, 10th; Chase Nalley, Vinings, 1st; and Riya Sharma, Mableton, 1st.
