Tiovivo: Whimsical Sculptures by Jaime Hayon is an outdoor, interactive display on the piazza by the entrance. Kids can explore the colorful and familiar shapes through November 27, 2016. Okay, adults can too. I confess.
I was super excited to go see the current exhibition of works (through January 2017) by children’s author and illustrator Eric Carle. He has published around 70 books, including famous titles such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
I was hopeful my son would enjoy some of his work, but as he has special needs including autism, I never really know with these things until we get there. But there it was, that look of recognition and smile when he saw the works on the walls from the books he loves.
If the kids seem hungry for more brightly-colored art, swing by the ongoing Howard Finster exhibit. The High owns several pieces from his outdoor gallery Paradise Garden, which actually made my Georgia Bucket List.
