One of America's Leading Art Museums

Atlanta's High family donated their own home in 1926 to increase exhibition space as local family art collections proved too much for the existing Atlanta Art Association. However, a fatal plane crash took the lives of 106 arts patrons on tour of European art museums in 1962.

In a generous gesture, the Louvre offered Whistler's Mother to Atlanta for display. Shortly after, the French government donated Rodin's sculpture, The Shade, in memory of those who perished in the crash.

The High Museum of Art was established in 1983 to provide the space and safe housing needed for Atlanta's evolving art collection. Three more building were added in 2005 to house 11,000 pieces of prized artwork worthy of world renown art museums. Interactive and cultural activities add an extra element of family fun.
