Holy Innocents' artworks to hang in the High Museum of Art

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- Seventy-five works of art from every division of Holy Innocents' Episcopal School (HIES) will be displayed in an exhibition at the High Museum of Art for six weeks, from April 1 to May 11. The exhibition, which also includes artworks from Westminster, is open to the public. 

“Having a work of art in a major art museum is an outstanding accomplishment—one that most people will never experience,” said Judie Jacobs, a professional artist and Upper School art teacher.  “This is an enviable and privileged position to be in.”

The event is part of Holy Innocents' three-year academic affiliation with the High Museum. Sponsored by the HIES Fine Arts Alliance, this partnership allows HIES students and faculty to enjoy behind-the-scenes access to exhibitions, curators and educational staff during the school year. Free entrance for field trips, professional development opportunities, student internship opportunities, and donated catalogs from all exhibitions are just some of the privileges this partnership provides. 

Guests are also invited to tour the current High exhibits the same day: "Go West!" or "Abelardo Morell: The Universe Next Door."

At Holy Innocents', students from Early Learners (3-year-olds) through the 12th grade participate in art classes, exploring a wide variety of media, including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, computer graphic design, ceramics and sculpture. HIES student artists also study art history and are given ample opportunities to participate in exhibitions, on-campus and off.
