Knowing that we'd have a few hours to explore in Atlanta, Michelle decided the High Museum of Art would be a great choice, particularly since it looked like there would be an exhibit or two that might interest the little girls. So, off we went!
Brooke would have loved to spend more time exploring the Tiovivo sculptures; unfortunately, there were hot to the touch. They're on display through Thanksgiving, and are outside the ticket booth, so maybe she can visit them another time.
The Eric Carle exhibit was inside the nicely air-conditioned building. It was actually quite fascinated to read about how he created his books. I was surprised at the number of titles I didn't recognize, and it was nice that they had copies of the books available to read. I love the bright colors and the collages are amazing.
When I think of art, I normally think of paintings. I was reminded that art comes in many different forms. Brooke liked this one which was just a series of mirrors stacked in a certain way.
Another thing he did was to collaborate with someone and carve pictures of castles on individual grains of sand - his version of a sandcastle.
