Featuring more than 250 prints and ephemera, this exhibition is the largest Warhol exhibition ever and includes some of the influential American artist’s most iconic portfolios. Museum visitors take a chronological journey through the late 20th century to explore four decades of some of Warhol’s most famous works of art. Among the key works are early hand-colored illustrations and books, including “Holy Cats by Andy Warhol’s Mother” (1957); screenprint portfolios, including “Marilyn Monroe” (1967), “Campbell’s Soup I” (1968), “Electric Chair” (1971), “Mao” (1972) and “Mick Jagger” (1975); record album covers featuring Warhol’s cover art (1949–1987); the elegiac portfolio “Flash—November 22, 1963,” memorializing John F. Kennedy’s death (1968);

and a screenprint portrait of former president and Georgia native Jimmy Carter (1976). www.high.org Expect the unexpected during The Curious Garden exhibition, presented May 6-Oct. 29, at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Enticing guests to discover, ask questions and talk about nature, this intriguing exhibition presents bold, site-specific installations that prompt guests to pause and learn more about the Garden’s plant collections and conservation work. Known for his unique city park enhancements, guest artist and design director Adam Schwerner uses manmade and altered natural materials to create eye-catching pieces that direct attention to nature’s simple beauty. Among the unexpected are dozens of

multi-colored spray-painted trees to inspire conversations about color, form, natural beauty and the value of trees; a mysterious display of scientific lab glassware filled with colorful liquids; and dozens of sparkly old chandeliers dripping with plants in the Fuqua Conservatory. The Curious Garden is unique in that all concepts originated within the Garden and are integrated into the existing landscape as a telling story of the Garden’s resources and mission. www.atlantabg.org Left to right: 40th Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival; “Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D.

Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics

CLAVVS

ATLANTA IS…PROGRESSIVE Our glimpse into the Music Voyager Atlanta series continues with spotlights featuring several inspiring local musicians. BY SARAH JOHNSON

MEET THE ARTISTS In the March/April issue of Atlanta Now, we featured a few artists from the Atlanta series of PBS’s Music Voyager, an international music and lifestyle travel series. In this edition, we explore Atlanta’s thriving creative communities through the eyes of Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics, Killer Mike and CLAVVS.

The band got its start back in 2009 at Atlanta’s Star Bar and has built a strong following ever since. Their music is written and recorded in Atlanta and brings Southern soul to life with a unique mix of Ruby’s east Indian soul sounds combined with traditional Georgia soul. As an independent band, they chose the Little Five Points neighborhood to call home. Ruby says that there’s a lot of people tuned to music in Little Five and she believes that weirdness is what brings the community together. “There’s just a weirdness here that you don’t find in a lot of places. It’s something to be embraced.” — Ruby Velle

KILLER MIKE RUBY VELLE & THE SOULPHONICS COURTESY OF LIFE AND DEATH PR

Ruby Velle is the Aretha Franklininspired lead singer of Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics — one of Atlanta’s best soul bands.

Killer Mike, an American hip hop recording artist who made his debut on Outkast’s Stankonia album, is a fan of Atlanta soul food and loves chatting it up with locals at his barbershop locations. “I get to know directly from the community what is going on and it helps my music because I try to talk about stuff that is relevant.” — Killer Mike See which restaurant Atlanta’s prominent people come to eat, get a

In this episode, get a feel for the creative vibe where they live, filled with art galleries, live performances and aspiring artists. Learn what they did with their album, hand painted by Amber, to help expose the community to their music. “There are so many independent artists and the independent spirit is alive and well here. It sums up the creative collaborations that can happen in the city.” — Graham Marsh

If local flavors are on your list of things to experience during your Atlanta visit, R. Thomas is a must. Open 24 hours a day, this funky watering hole serves burgers, sandwiches, breakfast all day, fruit smoothies and a vast selection of healthy cuisine with many vegan items. Colorful lighting sets the mood for this covered, enclosed garden patio oasis in South Buckhead. Started by Richard “R” Thomas, a creative entrepreneur, businessman and loved local character who recently passed away, this free spirited eatery is a weekend stop for families seeking breakfast as well as a hot lunch spot and an early morning hour stop for locals. Entrees, southwestern delights, bowls and pasta dishes are made with fresh herbs from the R. Thomas garden, as well as local organic honey and bee pollen, ocean vegetables, free range chicken and organic grains. Try the Chicken King Omelette with chicken, white cheddar and mushrooms and zucchini,


DINING or R.’s Hearty Breakfast Stew, a red potato corn chowder with quinoa, vegetables, dulse and shredded nori. Spicy Fish Tacos or the Cajun Sautee with blue corn posole with chicken, rosemary potatoes, onions and red peppers in a spicy marinara sauce will certainly add a kick to your meal. Small plates are also offered — grilled veggies and raw hummus, as well as mini fajitas — which can be paired nicely with fresh juices and smoothies.

1994 and features 18 holes — including the stand-out 213-yard, par-3 sixth hole that plays from an elevated tee to an island green. To honor and pay tribute to Bobby Jones’ legacy and to celebrate historic East Lake Golf Club, the Tour Championship is partnering with the Atlanta History Center to present a reimagined exhibition centered around Jones and his connection to the city and the sport. Called “Fair Play: The Bobby Jones Story,” this exhibition features a re-imagined main entrance and new artifacts, including a program from the 1934 Augusta National Invitational (now called the Masters). www.eastlakegolfclub.com

THREE MEGA EVENTS It’s impossible to not get caught up in the excitement with all the sporting events that take place in Atlanta all year long. And now, with its brand new state-of-the art stadium nearing completion, it should be no surprise that the city has been selected to host three back-to-back marquee sporting events over the next three years. First up, the College Football Playoff National Championship game is on January 8, 2018. This will be the first time the event has been held in Atlanta. Then on February 3, 2019, the nation’s paramount sporting event comes to town — Super Bowl LIII. This will be the city’s third time hosting the Super Bowl, but will be its first in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Rounding out this exceptional lineup is the 2020 Men’s Final Four in April, repeating the success of the event held here in 2020. True sports fans won’t want to miss a single one of these top-notch events. — Eryn March

Y’ALL COME BACK

COME BACK SOON Summertime is near — and now is the time to find your camera in preparation for your family’s trip to Atlanta! Thirty years ago, Ted Turner opened the doors of CNN to the public, and since then the CNN Studio Tours have become a highlight of any visit to Atlanta. In addition to behind-the-scenes access, the CNN Studio Tours are commemorating their 30th Anniversary with special giveaways each month this summer, culminating with a celebration in August to mark the date of the very first tour back in 1987. From the historic first newscast to the now living legacy, learn how CNN became the worldwide leader in news.
