William #Christenberry’s work shares something with the viewer that is difficult to capture - the passing of time. Christenberry systematically photographed the same buildings over the course of many years. Once he had accumulated a critical mass, he would arrange the photographs in grids to illustrate the passage of time and the effects of nature on human-made structures. Here, the grid’s rigid stability stands in contrast to the slow degradation of a roadside shop that succumbed to neglect and eventual collapse once it had outlived its usefulness. William Christenberry: Time & Texture is #onview through April 14, 2019.

Does this count for #NationalDiscoBallDay? We think so! When you visit #InfiniteKusama, make sure to check out the timeline images while you wait. They showcase #YayoiKusama’s journey of becoming one of the 20th century's most influential artists. This features Kusama’s Narcissus Garden which was first presented in 1966. Kusama staged an unofficial installation at the 33rd Venice Biennale. The silver spheres were installed on the lawn in front of the Italian Pavilion and reflect the grounds of the exhibition. ⠀

Look closely. What do you see in #YayoiKusama’s Arm Chair (1963)? The “accumulations” attached to household objects, combined with the repetition of images, spark the introduction of the Pop art movement. Kusama likely inspired other artists during the Pop art movement in the creation of soft sculptures. 📷 by @samuelrsolomon

One of Africa’s most compelling contemporary artists, El Anatsui, produces works that aesthetically and conceptually resonate with ancient African forms. In 1999, the Nigerian-based artist began a series of works he termed “metal cloth” sculptures. He joined bits of aluminum from the necks and tops of discarded local liquor bottles to form a glittering textile that recalls the 1,000-year-old tradition of strip-woven cloth made by men in West Africa. Taago (2006) by Anatsui is #onview in our African Art collection now. #highmuseum #africanart

Wouldn’t the office be more fun if it looked like this? These colorful dot stickers give you the chance to participate in the act of communal “obliteration.” Thanks to everyone who has participated so far! .

Do you know the story of how the Woodruff Arts Center came to be? This sculpture, The Shade by Auguste Rodin, pays tribute to our tragic beginnings. The sculpture was donated by France in 1968 as a memorial to honor the 122 members and friends from Atlanta who died in a plane crash in 1962. The Woodruff Arts Center, opened in 1968, stands as a memorial honoring the art patrons that lost their lives.
