High Museum of Art

Event Description

Thank goodness it’s Friday at the High Museum of Art! On the first Friday of every month, you can count on the High for drop-in art making, live performances, and drinks for purchase from 6 to 9 p.m. Part art party, part happy hour—and did we mention all programming is free with Museum admission?

Do the holidays have you feeling like the Grinch and saying, “Bah! Humbug!”? Well, put on some festive socks or maybe even a holiday sweater and hop on MARTA for a visit to the High.

  • Tour the galleries and get the lowdown on artworks that generous patrons have donated to the High.
  • Stop by our artistic maker stations to create cards, wrapping paper, and art that you can take home or donate to charitable organizations, including Jerusalem House, Sheltering Arms, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
  • Enjoy musical performances by Okorie Johnson, carolers from the Alliance Theatre’s annual production of A Christmas Carol, the Dynamix Dekalb County District Orff Ensemble, and more.
  • Don’t miss this opportunity to catch the holiday spirit at the High!

Please note: Regular museum admission tickets cannot be used to enter the exhibition Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors. Please visit the Infinity Mirrors FAQ page for ticketing information.

First Fridays are FREE with Museum admission and FREE for members.
Prepay for guaranteed parking, take MARTA to the Arts Center Station (N5), or take a Lyft.
