Join us for our second art exhibition!
‘Home is Where the Art is’ is a program in which local artists and students help guide and assist individuals in the homeless community to create their own unique pieces of art. ‘Home is Where the Art is’ is a collaboration with the Chattahoochee Valley Jail Ministries, Safe-House at Rose Hill United Methodist Church and the Bo Bartlett Center. The program takes place every Thursday morning at the Safe House at Rose Hill Methodist Church in Columbus, Georgia.
This special program is held in conjunction with Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia, The National Infantry Museum, and Oxbow Meadows. Girl Scout troops will visit the Museum throughout the day to participate in a self-guided scavenger hunt to earn part of their unique patch.
BUS DEPARTS FROM THE MUSEUM PARKING LOT
Come along for a special tour of Cross Country: The Power of Place in American Art, 1915-1950 at the High Museum of Art. This exhibition features 194 works by more than 80 artists, and explores the early 20th-century transition to seeking inspiration from rural landscape and culture. Our very own Jonathan Walz, Ph.D., Director of Curatorial Affairs and Curator of American Art, was a contributing author to the exhibition catalogue and will attend. This day trip to Atlanta includes transportation, lunch, and an opportunity for discussion with the experts of this major exhibition.

A long time ago in a gallery far, far away…you are faced with the ultimate tour question: will you choose the light side or the dark? Begin your Museum visit by choosing your group’s Star Wars destiny. Choose the light side and explore artists who were concerned with depicting light as well as heroes in the collection. Opt to explore the dark side and discover how color affects the tone of an artwork as well as discovering the dark metaphors that can be found in Museum objects. Let the force be awakened in you after your tour as you visit our special maker space to create your own droid. This tour will only be offered on one day and space is limited, so make sure to reserve your spot before the Millennium Falcon takes off without you.
