High Museum of Art

High Museum of Art

 

Where art and culture live and breathe

The largest in the Southeast, the three-building art complex in Midtown has already expanded with increased viewing space for African art, folk art and contemporary art. Three new structures designed by Renzo Piano, and linked by a Italian-style piazza, joins the original building, designed by Richard Meier. The High's collection has been reinstalled to show a broader array of its holdings from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. A sculpture garden, wine bar and restaurant transforms the Woodruff Arts Center campus into a "village for the arts." Admission is $18; $15 for students and senior citizens; $11 for ages 6-14; and free for under age 6 and museum members. The museum's hours are: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays-Wednesdays; 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Thursdays-Fridays; 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays; and noon-5 p.m. Sundays. 1280 Peachtree St. N.E., Atlanta. 404-733-4444, www.high.org
