High in Atlanta Jul 19, 2013
High Museum of Art is an excellent place to spend some quality time watching art while in Atlanta. They pride themselves in collection of American art through centuries, and that collection includes all kinds of art and exceptional design elements. Location of the museum is central, close to the beautiful Piedmont Park and easy to access with MARTA trains. In the front of the museum there is Rodin’s sculpture given by the French government after the horrible crash of the US plane in 60’ when more than 100 patrons of the High museum died. Museum is very well organized, space well used and collections very interesting and dynamic. Perfect place to spend hot Atlanta day :)

Best Art Musuem in the South East Apr 04, 2010
The High Museum of Art is a fantastic gem in Atlanta that must not be missed for any art lover.

The building itself is a work to observe, especially for architects and admirers of modern architecture. The main building opened in 1983 and was designed by Richard Meier. The building was deemed "of of the ten best works of Modern Architecture in the 1980's". In the 90's it got even better when an expansion, designed by Renzo Piano, opened doubling its size.

The High contains and large permanent collection but also regularly has amazing rotating exhibits. This weekend we saw the "Allure of the Automobile" which featured 18 of the world's rarest cars from the 30's to the 60's (Porche, Mercedes, Bugatti, Aston Martin).

If you are a Fulton County resident you get free admission the first Saturday of each month!
