From the High Museum:

Really Free: The Radical Art of Nellie Mae Rowe (Sept. 3, 2021-Jan. 9, 2022) — For the last 15 years of her life, self-taught artist Nellie Mae Rowe (1900-1982) lived on a busy thoroughfare just outside of Atlanta and welcomed visitors to her “Playhouse,” which she decorated with found-object installations, handmade dolls, chewing-gum sculptures, and hundreds of drawings. Featuring nearly 60 works from the High’s collection, “Really Free” is the first major exhibition of Rowe’s work in more than 20 years and the first to consider her practice as a radical act of self-expression and liberation in the post-civil rights era South.

Exhibit is open to all general admission ticket holders $16.50
