(AP) Atlanta's High Museum of Art is bringing a little piece of Paris to Peachtree Street.

An exhibit called "The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries (TWEE-luh-ree) Garden" opens Sunday at the High including sculptures, photos and paintings. There's even a row of trees on the plaza outside the Atlanta museum to evoke the orange trees that decorate the Tuileries each summer.

The show explores the works of art in the Parisian garden, the garden itself as a work of art and the garden as inspiration to artists.

The show is spread over three floors, with sections on the history of the Tuileries and works of art by Edouard Manet (mah-NAY) and Camille Pissaro among others.

The exhibition runs through January 19 here before heading to museums in Ohio and Oregon.
