With the Big Game less than a month away, we asked High Museum ambassador Berto Horne (@TPGent) for his top picks of things to do at the High and around Atlanta during the game weekend in February.

Berto is a social media influencer and lifestyle connoisseur. Head to this Morehouse man’s instagram feed for content on living the gentlemanly lifestyle in Atlanta.

For Berto’s picks, check out the video below. Scroll for links and more information.

Links and More Information

1. If you’re into sports, if you care about social justice, if you know about Colin Kaepernick, or if you remember the black power salute at the 1968 Olympics, you need to see the show With Drawn Arms: Glenn Kaino & Tommie Smith (open at the High Museum of Art through February 3).

This exhibition will remind you that the fight is not over and, fifty years later, athletes today still face consequences for speaking out against the inequities in the world. Sunday, Feb 3 is the last day to see this show.

2. Show your solidarity with Smith’s historic gesture of protest and don your own Tommie Smith Unite tshirt. Available in the High Museum Shop and online.

3. After the exhibition, stop by 1280 — Inspired Dining for a drink or a bite. Conveniently located on the High’s piazza, it’s the perfect way to conclude an afternoon at the museum. Sit back, relax, and discuss art and activism? Yes, please.

4. Catch big-name performances at the Super Bowl Music Fest at State Farm Arena from Jan. 31-Feb 2. Including Cardi B, Aerosmith, Migos, Lil Yachty, Bruno Mars, and Ludacris & Friends.

5. Take the family to Super Bowl LIVE, the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee’s free 10-day festival in Centennial Olympic Park. The festival will highlight Atlanta’s vibrant culture and music scene, featuring food, fun, and concerts produced by Atlanta’s own Jermaine Dupri. Expect performances by Goodie Mob, Waka Flocka Flame, and more. Check out the Super Bowl LIVE website for the full line-up and information. Open Saturday, January 26 through Saturday, February 2.

6. Explore the new Off the Walls murals all around Atlanta. Off the Walls is a city-wide initiative by WonderRoot and the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee. The project involved murals, media, and community conversations around Atlanta’s civil rights and social justice journey. The eleven muralists (mostly Atlanta locals) created their mural designs based on feedback from the community conversations. Visit offthewallatl.org for more information.

7. The High is hosting a raffle for TWO TICKETS to the big game!

With each $100 donation to the High’s Annual Fund, you’ll be entered to win TWO TICKETS to the Big Game on Sunday, February 3.

Your gift makes Atlanta and the High Museum of Art the cultural capital of the Southeast through engaging educational programs, important art acquisitions, and significant exhibitions.

The raffle ends January 19, 2019. For official rules and information, visit the official raffle website at High.org/raffle.
