Check out today's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. It features Stephanie Heydt from the High Museum of Art, AAFCA's Ed Adams plus Tyler Perry and the ladies of the Netflix movie, A Fall from Grace: Crystal Fox, Bresha Webb and Phylicia Rashad. 

Curator Stephanie Heydt stopped by to chat about the High Museum's current exhibition, Something Over Something Else: Romare Bearden's Profile Series. The show, which is now in its final weeks, features work from the iconic artist that go back as early as the 1910s all the way to the 1940s and beyond. Stephanie also opens up about an event associated with the exhibition that takes place on 1/25. (Click here for more information). 

Edward Adams from the African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA) is here to chat about this week's Oscar nominations including snubs and the lack of diversity and inclusion amongst the nominees. 

Closing out the show is my exclusive interview with Tyler Perry and the cast of his new Netflix movie, A Fall from Grace - Crystal Fox, Phylicia Rashad and Bresha Webb. I got a chance to chat with them about their roles and more at the new Tyler Perry Studios.
