Discover amazing art at galleries around Atlanta

From world-class museums with internationally recognized works of art in sleek, modern galleries to moody industrial spaces showcasing emerging and local artists, neighborhoods in Atlanta are packed full of galleries with art for every appetite.

The Southeast’s most prominent art museum, the High Museum of Art, is a gleaming, white architectural wonder designed by famed architects Richard Meier and Renzo Piano. Inside, discover more than 17,000 works of art, from classic to contemporary, including 19th- and 20th-century American and decorative art, European paintings, a growing collection of African art, modern and contemporary art and photography.

Located in the heart of the Midtown Arts District, Museum Of Design Atlanta (MODA) is the only museum in the Southeast dedicated solely to the study and celebration of design. Discover fascinating exhibits that examine how design affects our daily lives. Themes range from architecture and industrial to product packaging, fashion, motorcycles and coffee makers. 

Dedicated to featuring the works of Georgia artists at various stages of their careers, The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MOCA GA) has grown its collection from 250 works by 110 Georgia artists to more than 1,300 works of art. Solo exhibitions focus exclusively on Georgia artists while group exhibitions often include national and international artists. Discover works from emerging and established Georgia artists like Fahamu Pecou, Kathy Yancey and more.

Showcasing the work of emerging and established artists, Atlanta Contemporary pays particular attention to artists who haven’t had a significant exhibition in the Southeast. Exhibits include paintings, sculptures, photography and installations from more than 100 consequential artists from local, national and international art scenes.

The largest Black-owned fine art gallery in the Southeast, the striking 3,500-square-foot ZuCot Gallery promotes original works of art by living Black artists from around the world. Rotating exhibits of local artists are showcased on the mezzanine level. The gallery also regularly showcases the latest in short film, video installation and cinematography. Featured artists include Atlanta native Charlotte Riley-Webb and Atlanta local Georgette Baker. 

A visual and performing arts center, home to more than 450 artists and performers, the Goat Farm Arts Center is housed in a former 19th century factory. The hip industrial spaces host experiential events from performance art by dance troupe gloATL to art exhibitions in a wide range of mediums.

Stroll, bike or walk along the historic 22-mile Atlanta BeltLine trails that circle Downtown and discover an open-air art gallery, with murals, photography and sculptures along the way.

Situated on 12 acres of sculptured lawns and formal gardens, the magnificent Tudor Revival home on the National Register of Historic Places-former home of Coca-Cola heir Charles Howard Candler-is now home to the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, a community arts conservatory and cultural center. In addition to arts education classes for children and adults, rotating exhibits are offered in the Callanwolde Gallery on the second floor of the mansion.
