If you're in or near Atlanta, come to the High Museum of Art to view this exciting exhibition!!
The exhibition dates runs Sept 13, 2008- Jan 4, 2009.
See www.high.org for more details! Let me know if you're coming by, I work at the museum.

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) has one of the world's greatest collections of medieval and Renaissance works of art, ranging in date from 300 to 1600 AD and in scale from the miniature to the monumental. The 44 masterpieces shown here focus on the "Treasury Arts" and provide insight into artistic production across this vast period, highlighting both continuity and change. The exhibition includes carved ivories, bronze sculpture, jeweled metalwork, stained glass and a rare notebook by Renaissance artist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci. Whether designed for church or palace, these works not only were admired for their beauty and workmanship, they also tell a variety of stories about their makers and owners.
