High Museum of Art Affiliation Agreement Has Been Renewed

The Brenau University affiliate agreement with the High Museum of Art has been renewed for three years and became active on Sept. 18, 2013. The affiliate agreement provides a unique way for faculty to enhance curriculum on an interdisciplinary level with student visits, museum staff lectures and more.

If faculty wishes to take a group of students to the High Museum for a visit and/ or guided tour, contact Jodi O’Gara in the Group Sales department. Entrance is free for faculty and student groups. Reach O’Gara at 404-733-4533 or jodi.ogara@woodruffcenter.org.

For a more specialized, docent-led experience, contact Julia Forbes, head of museum interpretation and digital engagement, at 404-733-4470 or julia.forbes@woodruffcenter.org.

Brenau Gallery Director Melissa Morgan or any Art and Design faculty member can help offer ways to incorporate art into course content. Please inquire as early as possible, in advance of scheduled museum visits. Also, please share any ideas about staging a guest lecture for students here on Brenau’s Gainesville campus or at the museum. The High Museum staff will provide up to four lectures or programs on our campus each year. Melissa can be reached at 770-534-6263 or mmorgan4@brenau.edu and Mary-Beth Looney can be reached at 770-534-6266 or mlooney@brenau.edu.

Individual student entrance to the museum is free with a student identification card and faculty may show Brenau identification for a discounted rate of $5.

To purchase a discounted membership with the High Museum, please contact the High Museum membership department at 404-733-4575, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. Identify yourself as a Brenau University faculty member when you call. Also, purchase individual, family and dual level memberships at a 20% discount. 

Finally, if you are already engaged in any of these prospects and/ or have made future plans to pay a visit with students, please notify Mary Beth Looney and David Morrison in Communications and Publications. We do great things as educators but don’t always share that information.
