a day at the museum

My suitemates and I took study break and headed to the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. A group on campus was offering transportation and free shuttles, so we took advantage of it, and I was looking forward to finally checking the museum out.

The modern art section was amazing and by far my favorite – it was really casual and each piece was more interesting than the next.  Aside from Emory students, it was fairly empty so we had plenty of time to walk around and hang out near our favorite pieces.

Ultimately, this is the most famous piece at the musuem. Kapoor, the artist, also created the Bean in Chicago. (It also amplified your voice and echoed it if you stood in front)

Our little trip reminded me to get outside of the campus bubble more often and take advantage of all of the amazing things that Atlanta has to offer.
