Fun Things To do This Weekend in Atlanta

Virgil Abloh: Figures of Speech
Carol’s Picks Carol is the ATL Insider’s culture vulture. If there is a new exhibit in town or a new show on the stage, Carol is the first to know about it.

  • Virgil Abloh: "Figures of Speech",  Saturday, Nov. 9-Sunday, March 8, 2020
    Love fashion and the creative process? Then this exhibit might be for you. Virgil Abloh is described as a modern, gender-bending artist. He became creative director of the Louis Vuitton menswear line in 2018. The exhibit focuses on his creative process, collaborative work and pioneering discipline. Count me in.    
  • The Atlanta Pancakes & Booze Art Show, Friday, Nov. 8
    Pop art, fine art, photography, booze and free pancakes; now who wouldn't want to attend? Also on tap, live body painting, live art and DJs. Note: You must be 21 or older.     

  • Henri Dauman: Looking Up, through Dec. 30
    Photographer Henri Dauman is known for his iconic photographs, which graced the covers of some of our nation's most popular magazines. His personal story as a Holocaust survivor is easily as compelling as his photos.
