Murmuration, the latest outdoor installation at the High Museum of Art’s Sifly Piazza, opens Friday. The site–specific commission is a 2,350–square–foot mesh canopy that evokes the environment of birds and trees. It was inspired by Atlanta’s reputation as the “city in a forest” and by the High’s proximity to Piedmont Park. The sculptural pavilion, created by the New York-based design firm SO — IL, includes water pools, feeding stations and perches, and reflects upon the loss of billions of birds in recent decades. Free. Open through November 29.
Amare: To Love, a drive-in festival featuring short films by Black filmmakers, takes place from 8:30 to 11 p.m. Thursday and Friday in the parking lot of Dad’s Garage Theatre Company, 569 Ezzard St. S.E. The event is sponsored by the National Black Arts Festival. Movie titles and the names of featured filmmakers were unavailable. No bathrooms will be available for use. Several food trucks will be on hand, but ticket holders ($25 and $35 HERE) must order in advance.
In times like these when we are separated by necessity, ArtsATL is needed more than ever. Please consider a donation so we can continue to highlight Atlanta’s creative community in this unprecedented time.
