The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center is holding a Friends With Benefits event on September 12, 2009.

The Friends With Benefits event coincides with Atlanta Celebrates Photography Month, during which, the Contemporary will be opening photography and video exhibitions from artists Harry Shearer, Corin Hewitt and Will Rogan.

In addition, the Contemporary will be launching their new website at the event, designed by Digital Scientists. We’ve been anxious to unveil this beautiful design. It’s definitely what we consider modern art.

The Friends with Benefits event starts at 5pm. There will be live music, BBQ, and plenty of local art on hand. Tickets cost $15/person ($10 for members), with all proceeds going to the Contemporary’s art programs.

Event Details:

5-6 pm: Annual Meeting & Preview of 2010 Exhibits
