Unlock your inner child this fall and winter with a trip into the storybook world of Beatrix Potter!
Probably best-known for her illustrations of Peter Rabbit and his mischievous adventures around Mr. McGregor’s garden, or Jemima Puddle-Duck and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, Beatrix Potter is a staple of childhood memories.
The High Museum of Art is proud to host her famous artwork, along with some lesser known works that will pull at your heartstrings in the most nostalgic sort of way.
Beatrix Potter was more than just an author and illustrator. She worked as a farmer, natural scientist, and preservationist as well, and had very meaningful contributions to sciences and art.
This new exhibit features some of her most lovely work, and will send you right to a little cottage in the countryside.
And to make things even better, the exhibit is interactive! Pull out drawers to see real animal specimen, just like Potter would have seen while studying animals and insects. You can see real butterflies, bugs and bats!
The Beatrix Potter exhibit encourages you to see the world together–there are some pieces low to the ground, to encourage adults to look down to a child’s eye-line. And there are others that kids will need their grownup to give them a boost to see. Families will enjoy this exhibit best if they go together!
The High presents ‘Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature’ in conjunction with the Alliance Theatre’s world-premiere musical, Into the Burrow: A Peter Rabbit™ Tale, which will be performed on the Hertz Stage until December 23rd, 2023.
And even better news? You can go see the High’s newest exhibit, along with all of this classic fixed exhibits for free!
Everyone receives free admission to the High on UPS second Sunday of each month!
