Special Exhibits Included with CityPASS
Gogo: Nature Transformed
Through August 25, 2013
Gogo: Nature Transformed explores the role the natural environment plays in shaping the jewelry and home wares created by Georgia designer Janet 'Gogo' Ferguson. This is the first museum exhibition to showcase Gogo's designs, inspired mainly by found objects from Georgia's southernmost barrier island, Cumberland Island.
Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis
June 23 - September 29, 2013
Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis will mark the first time Johannes Vermeer's iconic painting will be seen in the Southeast. The painting headlines the exhibition, which highlights the artistic genius of Dutch Golden Age painters, including Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Frans Hals and Jan Steen, through the presentation of more than 35 exceptional works. Through landscapes and portraits, Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis will explore the idea that Dutch artists more readily embraced paintings of everyday subjects than their southern European contemporaries, focusing on capturing commonplace scenes of daily life.
Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis is organized by the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, The Hague. Generous support for this exhibition is provided by Sharon and Chip Shirley, The Netherlands America Foundation, Consulate General of the Netherlands, Alfred and Adele Davis Exhibition Endowment Fund, and an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.

We used it for Atlanta last summer and it was great! I tell all my friends to use CityPass for the destinations that have it. You save money and piece of mind by using them. I wished we would have used them a lot sooner.
