With more than 14,000 pieces in its permanent collection, Atlanta’s High Museum of Art is perhaps the biggest in the entire Southeast.
Here you can see a number of significant 19th- and 20th-century American artworks and decorative objects, as well as some important European paintings. Recent exhibitions have showcased artists such as Wynn Bullock, Janet Cardiff, Alex Katz, Joris Laarman, Nellie Mae Rowe, and Howard Finster. Local art fans particularly like the temporary exhibitions, although they say the permanent collection is definitely worth a look, too.
Fulton County residents enjoy free admission on the first Saturday of the month until 1 p.m. Visit the High Museum of Art's website to find out more!
