Modern Primitive
1393 N Highland, Atlanta, GA 30306 404-892-0556
VIRGINIA HIGHLANDS. Fans of folk art should make this local favorite their first stop. For more than a decade, this gallery has gone off the beaten path to find self-taught and folk artists who don't typically get the recognition they deserve. Although it continues to find these "outsider" artists, the gallery has now expanded to cover the contemporary art scene in Atlanta as well. Past shows have included "Scratching the Surface," which featured works by 12 artists and focused on their unique approaches to surface manipulation.

Trinity Gallery
315 E Paces Ferry Rd, Atlanta, GA 30305 404-237-0370

The owners, Alan Avery and Erin Wertenberger, have more than 60 years of combined knowledge and talent, and provide excellent assistance for the novice or the experienced art collector. More than 7,000 square feet of exhibition space display sculpture, crafts, and works on paper and canvas from the 13th century to modern times.

Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum

Wander through a reproduction of the Oval Office, peruse the Japanese gardens, and even ask Carter a few questions via an interactive display.

William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum
1440 Spring St NW, Atlanta, GA 30309 678-222-3700
MIDTOWN. This spacious museum offers fascinating and, at times, disturbing exhibits depicting Jewish history. There are two permanent galleries, one delving into the Holocaust and the other focusing on Atlanta's Jewish heritage. In addition, the Schwartz gallery offers a rotating calendar of temporary displays. The difficult but important subject matter is handled in a manner that is at once sensitive and gripping, making this a recommended stop for all ages. MARTA: Arts Center

Peachtree Road Race
Peachtree Rd, Atlanta, GA 30326 404-231-9064
BUCKHEAD-MIDTOWN. This huge race - the largest 10K race in the world - brings elite runners and weekend warriors to Atlanta from all over the country to try out the hilly course. The race begins at Lenox Square in Buckhead and travels to Piedmont Park in Midtown, with plenty of sweating, hose-spraying, beer drinking and revelry along the way. Because there are typically 55,000 runners, the winner is usually finished before the entire field crosses the starting line. Many who don't participate still line the streets to cheer.
