High Museum of Art - Free Admission for Celebrate Members - 1 pm, December 30

Free Day at the High Museum, Pay what you may. 1 pm, December 30, 2013

Enjoy an early New Year surprise during the early afternoon of December 30, 2013 with FREE ADMISSION to the High Museum and 50% off select merchandise at the Museum store.  It is pay as you may day. You can come in for free though we hope you will make a voluntary donation to help keep  great works of arts coming to Atlanta.


That is right, Celebrate Atlanta members can enjoy free admission to the High Museum.
We will begin our tour of the museum at 1 pm. The museum is open until 5 pm so enjoy a nice relaxing Monday afternoon at a price you cannot beat, that being zero, nothing, nada or whatever you wish to donate. To get the ball rolling, I will donate $100 to the High Museum on behalf of Celebrate Atlanta. Come for free or donate anything you want; it is up to you. Remember, members get in free with a ticket from me.

Better yet, if interested, let's meet for lunch.  Just answer the question attached to the event when you sign up about lunch.  I work in the area and we have many great options, so very affordable, some very nice.

Here is a list of exhibits we will be viewing:

    Have up been to the Booth gallery in Cartersville, GA? They have a huge exhibit...known for Western art!

    I enjoyed the meetup and very much appreciated the opportunity. However the Western Exhibit was disappointing to me. Too many depictions of killing animals and Indians suffering. Perhaps I've been spoiled by many trips to Santa Fe and the Southwest.

    Thank you for arranging or letting us know about community day at the High. I very much enjoyed the western exhibit. Annie Oakley is my hero! I understand there is a western exhibit in Cartersville, wagon wheels and all. I might enjoy that one day soon, too. Happy New Year!!!!

    It had been years since I had been to the High Museum. Such talent displayed. My guest and I arrived at 1:25. Sorry we missed the group. I just had trouble getting away from work calls. We stayed for several hours.

    Parking...I followed one of Dave advice. I parked free at Lindberg station, took MARTA TO JUST HOP OVER. Simple, and no hassles! I will use MARTA more than I have in the past from now on!.

    To those of you who moved here from NY, California, etc., and made a several thousands mile trek to get to Atlanta and now decide not to attend because you would have to travel 10 miles, I would say, uh well, I will keep what I would say to myself.

      Hey Dave...I'm @ MARTA now waiting...hope to make it before 1:15....thanks!

      December 30, 2013

  • Jeffrey

    I can't make it with my family member until 1:30 is that too late to get free admission. The tour would have already started, so I understand if it is not possible. thanks.

    December 30, 2013

  • Dr. B.

    Sorry to cancel but I teach a class 1-2pm and couldn't get there until 3pm so its sounding like I may not get in. Not going to take a chance

      Good strong walking shoes. Lots of walking.

      December 29, 2013

    • Dave G

      Really anything is fine but I would definitely wear comfortable shoes (that said, I am at my office so I am dressed for work). As to Clement's comment, I would beg to differ. You probably could get away with being naked as long as you bring a frame and stand agains the wall. You will simply be thought of as an exhibit. Sort of an exhibitionist exhibit, so to speak.

      December 30, 2013

  • Lori

    As the AJC has publicized that the high is free admission tomorrow, I am assuming it will be quite busy. Does Celebrate have group entry at 1:00, or can we expect waiting on line for a time. As I'd need to meet at museum, trying to plan my timing. Thanks for arranging group cultural event.

    December 29, 2013

    • Cindy

      any parking ideas?

      December 30, 2013

    • Dave G

      I highly suggest MARTA from Lindbergh (free parking) to ARTS Station. You can park at the High, Colony Square or any of the office buildings. They have a ground (outdoor) parking lot at the Four Seasons on 14th street. To get to the High from that lot, walk across the plaza of the building with Highland Bakery in it. If you eat at Highland Bakery, I think they validate your parking for 1 hour but I cannot guaranty this. I am simply walking from my office.

    Hi people i can help anyone in problem personality and families

    December 30, 2013

  • Dave G

    If you are worried about parking, park at MARTA at Lindbergh and take MARTA to ART Station and walk east 1 block. To get to Colony Square for lunch from ART Station, walk to Peachtree (station is on West Peachtree) and cross to Colony Square. I should be at Colony Square between 11:30 and 11:45.
