High Museum of Art

1280 Peachtree Street, N.E., Atlanta, GA 30309 View Map

The High Museum of Art, founded in 1905 as the Atlanta Art Association, is the leading art museum in the Southeastern United States.



In November of 2005, a new High for Atlanta opened to the public. Designed by Renzo Piano, the 177,000-square-foot expansion is the centerpiece of an overall upgrade to the Woodruff Arts Center campus. Three new buildings provide new exhibition space as well as enhanced education and programming facilities that more than double the size of the Museumís landmark building designed by Richard Meier. The expansion transforms the High into a lively, year-round destination for the arts.
