Hang With The “In” Crowd

Where Atlanta - - WHERE NOW -

Twenty-first cen­tury ar­chi­tec­ture buffs can check off another Renzo Pi­ano-de­signed art mu­seum on the ‘ol bucket list with a visit the in­cred­i­ble High Mu­seum of Art. But, what you see in­side counts, too, and the High doesn’t dis­ap­point with its June of­fer­ings. Vis­i­tors slurp up the tasty morsels of Camp­bell’s Soup cour­tesy of a Mod­ern art mas­ter in “Andy Warhol: Prints From the Col­lec­tions of Jor­dan D. Sch­nitzer and His Fam­ily Foun­da­tion,” be­gin­ning June 3. And for of-the-mo­ment fare, Span­ish artist Jaime Hayon is the sub­ject of two com­mis­sions: “Tech­ni­color,” a vi­brant in­stal­la­tion that pairs hang­ing ta­pes­tries and glazed ce­ramic pieces, and “Merry Go Zoo,” a play­ful, ki­netic sculp­ture gar­den. Both open June 24. 1280 Peachtree St. NE, 404.733.4400.

SWEETWATER BREW­ING COM­PANY TAPROOM

Visit the two guys behind this Mid­town craft brew­ery and cool down with a frosty pint, or four, poured from among the com­plete lineup of sig­na­ture, sea­sonal and pi­lot beers. If you’re feel­ing rest­less, try a tour of the fa­cil­ity. 195 Ot­t­ley Drive, 404.691.2537.

SKYVIEW FERRIS WHEEL

Head down­town for a ride on the 150-foot Skyview Ferris wheel. Cli­mate con­trolled gon­do­las pro­tect pas­sen­gers from the el­e­ments, whether skies are shot through with tor­rents of rain or streams of sun­shine. As you might imag­ine from the wheel’s sheer stature, sight­lines of Cen­ten­nial Park and be­yond are ut­terly amaz­ing. Go VIP for a Fer­rari-style seat. 168 Luckie St. NW, 678.949.9023.

FERNBANK SCI­ENCE CEN­TER’S PLANETARIUM

You and 499 of your clos­est friends can zoom through the heav­ens aboard the star-lit vi­sions of the new Spitz 4k pro­jec­tor at Fernbank Sci­ence Cen­ter’s Jim Cherry Me­mo­rial Planetarium. The full-dome dig­i­tal pro­jec­tion sys­tem— we’re talk­ing a 70-foot di­am­e­ter—means that the Earth, our so­lar sys­tem and fas­ci­nat­ing top­ics like dark mat­ter come alive. Plus, it’s much eas­ier on the wal­let than a field trip to the lo­cal cine­plex for a show­ing of “De­spi­ca­ble Me 3.” 156 Heaton Park Drive, 678.874.7102.

MON­U­MENT GAR­DEN

While on a tour of SunTrust Park or at a Braves game, check out team mem­o­ra­bilia, such as a Henry Louis “Hank” Aaron statue, in the con­course behind home plate. 755 Bat­tery Ave.
