On Black Friday, you will NOT find me fighting crowds and shopping at indecent hours. Any savings I may incur is totally not worth the drama to me, especially when I have such a better alternative!
I'll be sleeping in and then hanging out with my guys at the High Museum of Art's Day After Thanksgiving event! The High will be open from 10:00am - 9:00am that day, with special festivities for the family beginning at 1:00p.m. View the new Cézanne And the Modern exhibit while you are there!
Best part? Kids receive FREE admission all day!
What kinds of activities are planned?
- Watercolor Workshop - paint just like Cézanne!
- Kids yoga
- Hold a pose while your family attempts to draw you as a still-life!
- View the George Washington portrait by Gilbert Stuart and draw your own portrait on a High Museum $1 bill!
- Live music
- Family Scavenger Hunt
There is also special programming for teens, including a Bookbinding Workshop, a linocut Workshop and the Reel Riot Film Festival which includes over 20 short films submitted by teens from all over the country!
I'm planning to make sure my kids see the Gordon Parks : Segregation Story exhibit. The exhibit includes moving photographs that provide an insight into the daily life of a Birmingham, Alabama family in the 1950's.
If you will have family in town for Thanksgiving, what better way to spend time together than to explore the arts and exercise your creativity?
What are your post-Thanksgiving traditions?
