Stumbling across the High Museum of Art during a weekend trip to Atlanta gave me new perspective on the Southern art scene. I especially enjoyed the Picasso to Warhol temporary exhibit, and the Southern tilt—the museum has a heavy influence of self-taught artists from below the Mason-Dixon Line. The overall atmosphere was a welcome addition to a weekend trip filled with food, beer, music, and, of course, football.

Dali Til' Dawn
Atlanta's art and music scene is a must-see. On the final night of the Salvador Dali Exhibit, the High Museum was open for 31 hours straight. An artist speed-painted a Dali portrait, local poets read their work, independent short films played on the wall in the lobby, the jazz band Zentropy whizzed through several sets, and a circus group put on two extravagant shows. Many visitors dressed up as melting clocks or women interspersed with drawers. We spent the evening sipping Pinot Noir, mesmerized by Dali's beautiful paintings and sculptures.
