The High Museum of Art in Atlanta has added four new directors to its 85-member board of directors, including the Grammy-winning hip-hop artist and political activist Michael Render, better known by his stage name, Killer Mike.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Render attended weekend classes at the High Museum when he was growing up in the city. “I’m a product of the arts programming at the Atlanta public school system,” he told the paper. “I’m looking forward to seeing more people from my part of town, people who look like me, at the High. I think you will see the High Museum in a rap video very soon.”
The other members joining the board are local community activist Jean Hanges, Georgia-Pacific executive David Park, and Interscope Records VP Keinon Johnson. The High’s director, Rand Suffolk, said in a statement, “We’re thrilled to add these community leaders to our board. Together they’ll bring extraordinary new perspectives, voices and talents to bear on our mission.”
