Mi Casa, Your Casa: Free and Interactive Art at the HIGH

*This post was NOT sponsored by the High Museum of Art. All opinions are my own*

One of our favorite places to visit in Atlanta is the High Museum of Art... or as the Atlanta residents call it "The High." Aside from their fabulous permanent collection and featured exhibitions, they offer amazing programs for all ages. Today, we rounded up the troops and took them to the High for "Toddler Thursday" to stroll through the Dream Cars exhibit and make their own art. Even before we purchased our admission tickets, we had the opportunity to relax and enjoy the new art installation on the Sifly Piazza. Located in the middle of the Woodruff Arts Center campus, the Mi Casa, Your Casa interactive setting is open to the public for no charge!

If you follow The Puzzled Palate on Instagram, I am sure you noticed that I was blowing up the feed with fun pictures from our time on the hammocks and tagging them with #MiCasaYourCasa. Aside from the fact that I am an unapologetic shutterbug, there was another reason for the onslaught of pictures. While you are relaxing and inevitably updating your social media buddies, your photos will print out at the Smilebooth located right inside the front door of the museum. The photos are 100% free and actually print attached to a coupon for a discounted admission!


Look at my new refrigerator art!

Here are some favorites shots taken with the "fancy" camera!

The Mi Casa, Your Casa interactive exhibit will be open until November 2nd, 2014! 
Grab a friend, a good book, a bag lunch and head over for some free fun!

    We just came home from the High Museum, we had a FANTASTIC time. The hammocks were irresistible, none of my family could stay our of them. The Dream Car exhibit was what brought us to the museum but we loved all the art. We took advantage of Free Fulton Saturdays.
