Join us for wine, beer, and appetizers followed by a private tour of two exhibits at The High Museum of Art!
David Brenneman, Director of Collections and Exhibitions and the Frances B. Bunzl Family Curator of European Art, will lead us on a private tour of the High's summer exhibitions, Radcliffe Bailey: Memory as Medicine and John Marin's Watercolors: A Medium for Modernism.
In Memory as Medicine, Atlanta-based, internationally known artist Radcliffe Bailey explores American history and memory to encourage healing and transcendence through art. The exhibition features 37 works ranging from heroic to intimate scale, including installations, paintings, sculptures, mixed media, photos on metal, and works on paper. John Marin's Watercolors, the first major comprehensive exhibition addressing John Marin's modernist achievements in the watercolor medium, showcases how Marin reinvented the process of watercolor and transformed American painting. Comprising more than 100 works, the exhibition includes a group of 40 watercolors donated to the Art Institute of Chicago from the collection of Alfred Stieglitz by his wife Georgia O'Keeffe―many of which have rarely or never been on public display.
