Atlanta Art Date

Maz had an extra long weekend for her school's winter break so we decided to have a mommy/daughter art date in Atlanta on Tuesday. We visited the High Museum of Art, viewed the Picasso to Warhol exhibit and saw most of the KAWS pieces. She was especially excited when I surprised her with a trip to the CNN Center to shop at the Cartoon Network store.

Maz and Andy
Maz is a very fortunate kid to be able to view famous pieces like this at age 9. I was 29 by the time I got to see an original Warhol, and looks like Mazzy's 20 years ahead of me. The best part? She knew some of the paintings and artists in the exhibit thanks to her art teacher. And she wondered out loud: "Why are there so many naked people in art?" So cute!

Maz and Lady Rainicorn

We made it back home in time for soccer practice. Now we have a new to-do list for Atlanta. I've promised a CNN Tour and a visit to Fernbank. Perhaps we can do it over Spring Break?
