5 things to do: Atlanta Ballet 2 Presents Beauty & the Beast

What's going on around ATL today.

Bruce Johnson, Exercise in Restraint: Montgomery Civil Rights Portraits

Gallery 72 - 72 Marietta St N.W. Atlanta, GA 30303 Free. 10 a.m. 

Gallery 72 presents an exhibition of mixed media painting inspired by the Montgomery Civil Rights Movement by local artist and photographer Bruce Johnson. Bruce Johnson states of this exhibition “I am obsessed with painting arrest photos of civil rights advocates from the mid-50’s in Montgomery, Alabama, most of them from the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

It is my belief that America has lost something more important in recent years than predominance in the world economy; it is our ability to discern what is important and act upon it. These images, for me, epitomize that on many levels. Each of these brave individuals risked something different, notoriety, income, family, beliefs, safety, but they risked it all collectively.”

There will be an exhibition reception on Thursday, February 8th, 2018 from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.
