History After Hours
Join us outside for a cocktail and live music—courtesy of The Bonaventure Quartet—in our newly opened Entrance Gardens! Featuring over 15,000 perennials and a 60x30 foot white oak tree table. Featuring over 15,000 perennials and a 60x30 foot white oak tree table—perfect for social distancing—the design of our Entrance Gardens is based on the New Perennial Movement and is a sweeping matrix of grasses and flowering perennials that seeks to redefine traditional aesthetics of a garden and reestablish our connection to nature.
Attendees are also invited indoors to view Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow—one of our newest exhibitions that explores the African American struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolded in the 50 years following the Civil War. The exhibition features art, historical artifacts, photographs, and specially-created media pieces that illustrate transformative events in the past and their continuing relevance today.
Tickets are $20 for not-yet members, $15 for members.
Complimentary drink ticket included with ticket purchase. All indoor museum exhibitions, including Cyclorama: The Big Picture, will remain open for event attendees from 5–8pm. Masks are required indoors; and encouraged outdoors.
Should this event be cancelled due to inclement weather, your ticket will be automatically transferred to the next scheduled History After Hours. Ticket holders will be notified of a cancellation by 10am on the day of the event; questions can be directed to information at atlantahistorycenter.com.
