3. Haven't had the chance to visit the newly-expanded Georgia Museum of Art yet? This weekend is your perfect opportunity since they are holding a temporary exhibition to introduce the public to 3 of their 4 new Study Centers in the Humanities! Enjoy all the paintings, prints, drawings, photos, and letters; some of the archival materials on display are related to Alfred Heber Holbrook, the founder of the GMOA. The museum is open from 12-5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 1-5 p.m. on Sunday.
These are only three events out of many going on in Athens GA this weekend, however! Be sure to check out the following events if you're looking for more experiences to pack into your holiday.
- Music lovers should look into an Evening of Motown and R&B at The Melting Point this Friday. The Splitz will be bringing their fun and funky stage show to Athens; this all ages event should not be missed. Get there before 9 p.m. and bring your dancing shoes!
- Looking to enjoy the great outdoors? Join the free Naturalist's Walk from 10-11 a.m. on Saturday. Go to the Sandy Creek Nature Center and ENSAT Center for a refreshing hike around the property. Don't forget your binoculars and cameras!
- If you're trying to find something different, check out the Classic City Rollergirls Hollerin' Hootenanny on Saturday night. This night of fun and entertainment includes games, music, and dancing for only $3. It starts at 9:30 p.m. at the Little Kings Club and lasts all night. Don't miss out on the Watermelon Seed Spittin' Contest!
