Atlanta Upside Down Tour

Take a break from the holiday cheer If you’re weary of winter wonderlands or perhaps just looking for some non-holiday events and activities during this busy season, we can help. Atlanta has plenty of outstanding events, tours and exhibitions to keep your itinerary packed. BY CAROL CARTER

GEORGIA ON MY SCREEN Visiting Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum is fun and informative any time and, as an added treat, the exhibit, “Georgia On My Screen: Jimmy Carter and the Rise of the Film Industry” is on view until Dec. 31. The exhibition includes artifacts from more than 60 productions filmed in Georgia over the course of 46 years. Highlights include the Best Picture Oscar for “Driving Miss Daisy;” more than 20 objects from “The Walking Dead;” costumes and artifacts from Netflix’s “Stranger Things;” and Vinny’s boots and Mona Lisa’s dress from “My Cousin Vinny.” It’s

fitting that this exhibit is on view at the Carter Library because it was then-Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter who created the state’s first film office. Today, moviemaking is a multibillion dollar industry in our state. www.jimmycarterlibrary.gov

BEHIND-THE-SCENES MOVIE TOURS More top-grossing films shoot in Georgia than any other place in the world, according to the Georgia Department of Economic Development, and movie fans can visit filming locations around town by hopping aboard an Atlanta Movie Tours bus. The company’s brand new “Atlanta Upside Down Tour” is all about the hit Netflix show “Stranger Things.” Lasting nearly four hours, this tour takes fans to locations perfect for hiding out from the Demogorgon, Demodogs and the Mind Flayer. Other tours include the Hero Tour, highlighting Marvel film spots, and three Big Zombie tours. www.atlantamovietours.com

ICONIC PHOTOGRAPHY The exhibit, “Henri Dauman Looking Up: Iconic Photography that Defined the 20th

SCOTT WHITE

“Henri Dauman Looking Up: Iconic Photography that Defined the 20th Century” at the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum

Century” runs through December at the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum. Dauman’s photography documents events and personalities including the Kennedys, Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley as well as the Castro revolution. As striking and memorable as his photographs are, Dauman’s life story is equally compelling. Born in France, Dauman was 9 when his father was taken by the Nazis to Auschwitz where he died. Dauman and his mother hid for several years before his mother died when he was 14. At age 17, Dauman’s uncle brought him to New York City. The self-taught photographer produced images for the covers of Time and Life magazines, among other publications. www.thebreman.org

of the Battle of Atlanta. The cyclorama stands 49 feet tall, stretches longer than a football field and weighs 10,000 pounds. The exhibit “Any Great Change: The Centennial of the 19th Amendment” documents the decades-long struggle for women’s suffrage. This exhibit runs through Jan. 31, 2021. www.atlantahistorycenter.com

BOOK FESTIVAL OF THE MJCCA It’s time for the 28th edition of the Book Festival of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta, which brings to town nearly 50 authors over a two-week period. The festival provides the opportunity for

book lovers to listen, meet and interact with authors. Among the authors on the agenda this year are Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver with their series about a space alien who visits Hollywood as a tourist and becomes a star. Two well-known names also in the author lineup are Hillary and Chelsea Clinton with their “The Book of Gutsy Women.” The festival runs through Nov. 18. www.atlantajcc.org

THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY Prints dating from 1500 to 1700 use allegory to address issues of love, virtue, vice, sin, death and salvation. On view at the Michael

C. Carlos Museum, the exhibit, “Through A Glass, Darkly: Allegory and Faith in Netherlandish Prints from Lucas van Leyden to Rembrandt,” showcases prints from a period when printmakers in the Low Countries were the most skilled and prolific in Europe. Among the 90 prints are “Hell,” by printmaker Jan Sadeler and engraver Dirck Barendsz, which presents fabulously detailed images of tortured souls being carried into hell. A more benign, in fact peaceful, print, “The Calling of Saints Andrew and Peter,” by Dirk Vellert depicts Christ standing on a shore calling to Peter and Andrew in a boat. This exhibits runs through Dec. 1. www.carlos.emory.edu

Cirque Du Soleil’s VOLTA

Sterling-Christine Pridgeon, an Atlanta native and Client Program Manager, Adecco VOLTA by Cirque du Soleil, tells us a little more about the show.

What is your role with VOLTA? I am the traveling Client Program Manager for Adecco that acts as the On-Site Manager for all local Adecco staff. This means that I am responsible for finding, hiring and managing local employees in each city visited by VOLTA. In each city, including Atlanta, VOLTA hires 200 local people for positions such as ushers, box office agents, customer service representatives, and my role is to supervise all these employees for the duration of our stay.

my favorite restaurants such as The Flying Biscuit and Fellini’s Pizza. For my night life, I enjoy MJQ, different lounges/bars on the Edgewood strip, Bonfire ATL, The Graveyard Tavern and The Glenwood. Through Jan. 5, VOLTA will be presented at Atlantic Station outside under the Big Top. www.cirquedusoleil.com/volta

SASKIAPOTTER

When seeing a Cirque du Soleil show, one should expect the unexpected. VOLTA is a journey of discovery, where extreme adventure is reflected through the street sports culture. A full-sized BMX park will stage nonstop air tricks and jaw-dropping acrobatics on wheels with jump boxes and ramps. Watch double dutch jump roping, rooftop hopping and unimaginable feats, all to the beat of the live band playing a contemporary score.

Bike Tricks by Waz

GO BACK IN TIME 1,000 YEARS AND STILL MAKE IT HOME FOR DINNER.

What’s the most unexpected part of the show? VOLTA tells the story of Waz, a misfit who’s different than the other ones, and who goes into a journey of self-acceptance. The most unexpected part of the show to me is the amazing dance solo by Waz. It is so powerful because it is when he finally “finds his free” and expresses through dance that he has accepted himself and embraced the beauty in his difference and begins to shine as a unique individual.

Where do you like to go for fun in Atlanta? Being an Atlanta native, I tend to shy away from high volume tourist events. Some of my favorite places to go during the day are Little Five Points (L5P), East Atlanta Village (EAV), Piedmont Park, Stone Mountain or Atlanta Indie Market (monthly local and independent festival). I also enjoy hiking the trails in SweetWater State Park, as well as eating at
