Culture notes: High Museum’s 5 academic affiliations; MAACC offers class for cultural advocates

VISUAL ARTS
It’s academic at High

While the High Museum of Art has attracted attention in recent years via high-profile collaborations with glossy museums such as the Louvre and the Museum of Modern Art, it has been striking partnerships with Georgia academic institutions.

This week the High announced  its fifth such affiliation, with Georgia College in Milledgeville. As part of the one-year arrangement, students and faculty will receive free admission to the High and attend lectures and experience behind-the-scenes programs. Students also will have the opportunity to participate in museum internships.

The High’s four other academic partners are Brenau University in Gainesville, Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, and the Lovett School and the Westminster Schools, both in Atlanta. HOWARD POUSNER

ARTS
A class for cultural advocates

Seeking to increase knowledge about and advocacy for the arts, the Metro Atlanta Arts & Culture Coalition (MAACC) is offering a free fall class targeting corporate executives, arts leaders, government representatives and others.

The deadline to apply for the Fall Arts Leaders of Metro Atlanta class is July 26 (find the online application at www.metroatlantaarts.org/application).

The class, one day per month for four months, offers in-depth discussion of subjects such as the economic impact of the arts, the arts’ role in building cohesive communities, arts advocacy issues, public art, differing philosophies behind running arts organizations and arts in education. Participants visit arts and cultural venues across metro Atlanta and meet with key metro leaders. HOWARD POUSNER
