Just think about how long water lilies were around before Claude Monet knocked the art world on its ass by actually acknowledging them? Well, maybe it was his talent that captivated critics more than the water lilies themselves, but let's have a moment of silence for the muse. The High Museum of Art is doing just that with MONET WATER LILIES. The exhibition features four of Monet's masterpieces from New York's Museum of Modern Art: "Reflections of Clouds on the Water-Lily Pond," the largest water lilies painting in the United States; "The Japanese Footbridge"; "Water Lilies"; and "Agapanthus." Through Aug. 23. Free-$18. Tues.-Wed. and Fri.-Sat., 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Thurs., 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sun., noon-5 p.m. 1280 Peachtree St. 404-733-4585. www.high.org.
