High Museum of Art

It is hard to miss this ultra-modern, stark white structure that houses Atlanta's finest collections of classic and contemporary art. A towering atrium soars to four interior levels, with the galleries moving from 18th and 19th Century collections near the ground floor to cutting edge art on the upper levels. The High has increased in size to 312,000 square feet with three buildings designed by renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano: the Susan and John Wieland Pavilion, the Anne Cox Chambers Wing for galleries, and an office building. The High is a frequent host to some of the world's most important touring collections, and has hosted exhibitions featuring artists like Pablo Picasso and Norman Rockwell. With over 15000 works in the permanent collection, the High also displays old prints of Abe Lincoln and of General William Tecumseh Sherman, and an array of sculptures and photographs.

Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA)

The Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) opened its doors in 1993 as Atlanta International Museum of Art & Design, in the city's downtown area. After a decade, and receiving local grants, it relocated and shifted focus from art to design. MODA is now located in midtown across the High Museum of Art, in the Peachtree Building. This is the only institution in the Southeast which strives to understand every aspect of everyday design. Some of the exhibitions held here cover subjects such as chairs, architecture, bathrooms and photography. Regular gallery tours, lectures, and awareness programs for kids are also held. Several international exhibitions have been held here, featuring cutting-edge plans from all over the world.
