Cover: High Art...Old and New

One of the things that I love about the High Museum of Art are the phenomenal temporary exhibitions, but one of the things I love most about the High is its permanent collections, ancient through modern. I've loved most every kind of art at one point or another in my life, but the one kind that I've loved throughout my life is modern art.

This tapestry is at the entrance to the Modern and Contemporary permanent gallery of the High. They also have very nearby some changing exhibits...many of which are beyond supernova brilliant!

The High doubled in size during the years I lived in Washington, D.C., and while the new collections take my imagination on trips beyond borders I know I'll never visit, there's a comfort in seeing many of the works of art that I knew so many years before. One of those is the Veiled Rebecca, which is also one of the most visited pages on this blog!

Well, enjoy the above pre-sized Facebook Cover Photo of this modern art tapestry located in the High Museum of Art...and visit it in person—it's quite remarkable! At some point, head over to the wanderlust ATLANTA Facebook Page to check out the other Cover Photos and be sure to "Like" the Page while you're there!
