The High Museum of Art observes the centennial of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution giving women the right to vote with the ongoing exhibit Pioneers, Influencers and Rising Stars: Women in the Collection. The installation includes some of the most influential voices of the past 50 years, including New Yorkers Shirin Nesha and Lorna Simpson, and German-born Kiki Smith; midcareer artists Chantal Joffe (London) and bicoastal Korean American Won Ju Lim; emerging artists Jamian Juliano-Villani and Ella Kruglyanskaya (both in New York); and Atlanta artists Rocío Rodríguez and Annette Cone-Skelton. The High is open every day except Monday. Timed tickets ($14.50 for nonmembers) are available HERE. Read about safety protocols HERE.
