High Arts Day
Monday, November 4, 2013, at 10 a.m.
High Arts Day is a special fundraiser hosted by Art Partners, the High Museum of Art's volunteer and social group. This year, the eighteenth annual event celebrates the exhibition The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden and features chef and author Hugh Acheson as our special guest.
Beginning at 10 a.m., we will serve mimosas while you shop one-of-kind silent auction items and a fabulous trunk show. Hugh Acheson will then take you into his community and his creative world of food to add new favorites to your repertoire. Once you begin craving fresh new flavors, we will please your palette with a Parisian-inspired seated luncheon. Afterward, you will be among the first in the city to see "Paris on Peachtree" with a private viewing of The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden. And for dessert, you will have the opportunity for Hugh Acheson to sign a copy of his recently published cookbook A New Turn in the South: Southern Flavors Reinvented for Your Kitchen.
Each year, original artworks are created to serve as unique centerpieces for the luncheon tables. This year's centerpieces – original paintings on canvas – are available in the silent auction, along with many other spectacular items.

High Arts Day 2013 focuses on The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden, which is the first major American exhibition on this treasured landmark. It includes more than 145 paintings, sculptures, photographs, and other historical documents that depict the Tuileries from the collections of the Musée du Louvre, Château de Versailles, Archives Nationales de France, Musée Carnavalet, and several American museums. A special highlight of the exhibition is the display of large-scale sculptures from the Tuileries Garden, all created in the seventeenth through twentieth centuries by artists such as François-Joseph Bosio, Antoine Coysevox, and Aristide Maillol. The exhibition also explores how the sixty-three-acre garden influenced and inspired works by painters including Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, and Childe Hassam, and photographers such as Eugène Atget, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and André Kertész.
