It's here. The weekend, that is. Here are a few ideas for things to do this weekend in Atlanta.

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.

  • Violin Sensation Joshua Bell, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 20, 21 and 22
    Joshua Bell is considered a superstar of the classical music world. On the program this weekend as he performs with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra: Wagner's Prelude to Act I of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg; Jennifer Higdon's Concerto for Orchestra; Wieniawsk's Violin Concerto No. 2; and Sarasate's Zigeunerweisen. 
  • "Something Over Something Else" by Romare Bearden, through Feb. 2, 2020
    This poignant walk down memory lane with acclaimed artist Romare Bearden had me looking back on my own life and wondering how I would, as he had done, create collages about various aspects of my life. Hie over to the High Museum. You'll be glad you did.  

Joleen's Picks

Joleen is a work-at-home mom to a 6-year-old son. She and her family live in the 'burbs but enjoy regularly traveling into the city for family-friendly fun and adventure.

  • Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade, Saturday, Sept. 21
    This perennial favorite features a parade of illuminated lanterns along the Atlanta BeltLine. In addition you can glimpse florescent works of art, brightly colored costumes and embellished tall hats.

  • Children’s Workshop: Vulture Headdress, Sunday, Sept. 22 
    The Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University is excited to offer a fun workshop where elementary aged school kids will learn about ancient Egyptian and the elaborate vulture headdresses that royal women wore to connect to goddesses. Kids will work with artist Pam Beagle-Daresta to create their own felt headdresses in this style.

Tommy's Picks
Tommy is a young professional keeping an eye out for the city's liveliest happenings.

  • Imagine Music Festival,  Thursday, Sept. 19-Sunday, Sept. 22
    Atlanta Motor Speedway hosts EDM artists such as Armin Van Buuren, Alesso, Galantis, RL Grime and more. But the music isn't all, as the festival will become an artistic undersea adventure featuring circus performers, mermaids and art installations.
