The High Museum of Art in Atlanta was recently visited by onscreen boxer, bottled water enthusiast, and aspiring abstract painter Sylvester Stallone, who documented his visit in a
rocky shaky video selfie he shared on Instagram today. The post captures him in front of a video work by Borna Sammak, “Untitled” (2015), sharing an astute observation: “Living art, fantastic, huh? Nothing’s better than art.” (Stallone is in Atlanta shooting — rumor has it — the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel.)

While at the High he ‘grammed another selfie in front of Morris Louis’s “Para III” (1959) with the over-the-top caption, “Checking out the in Atlantia Georgia very inspiring much more to follow.” Coming from the man who’s spent the last 40 years remaking the same film, that promise seems like a sure bet.

We apologize for this error, which has been corrected.
