Georgia Public Library System has partnered with the Michael C. Carlos Museum. Patrons can check out a family pass at their local library, which covers up to six admissions to the museum.
The Carlos Museum is now one of the Southeast's premier ancient art museums with major collections of art objects from ancient Egypt, Nubia, Near East, Greece, Rome, ancient Americas, Africa, and Asia, as well as a collection of works on paper from the Renaissance to the present.
The Museum also features traveling exhibits, including the upcoming exhibition of Shakespeare's First Folio, set for Nov. 5-Dec. 11.
More information on the Museum can be found at www.carlos.emory.edu.
Just around the corner, starting November 5, our friends at the Michael C. Carlos Museum open The First Folio: The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare. At a vibrant and peppy 393 years old, the First Folio is the first collected edition of Shakespeare's plays. The Folio was compiled by his fellow actors and had they not, many of these plays would be lost to time. It also contains one of the only two likenesses of the man himself considered to be authentic. And it's in Atlanta.
