Searching for something affordable to do with the family this Friday, November 12, 2010? Look no further than the High Museum of Art, which on that day will celebrate the anniversary of its five-year expansion with five hours of free admission, from 5pm-10pm.
Among the additional perks on the special day:
• free cupcakes for the first 500 visitors;
• five off purchases in the Museum Shop (15 percent for museum members);
• 25 percent off memberships.
And get this: if you visit the exhibit “Dalí: The Late Work” you’ll be among the first to see the artist’s “Persistence of Memory” from The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Dali’s most famous painting goes on view to the public at 10 a.m. Friday morning.
There are no advance reservations, and timed tickets for Dalí will be distributed upon arrival. The last ticket will be issued at 9:30 p.m.
The High’s $178.4 million expansion, which gave it a total of 177,00 square feet – the original building has 135,000 square feet -- was designed by the renowned Renzo Piano of Genoa, Italy.
