We can’t wait to welcome you to our beautiful campus in Midtown Atlanta! The Woodruff Arts Center has issued the following policies to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all of our visitors.

All indoor facilities at the Woodruff Arts Center, including the Memorial Arts Building, High Museum of Art, Twelve Eighty–Inspired Dining, and Sifly Piazza are nicotine-free environments. There are designated outdoor smoking areas around the Arts Center; please limit smoking, vaping, etc. to these areas.

The entire Woodruff Arts Center is a drug-free environment.

Pets properly restrained via leash are permitted outside at the Woodruff Arts Center. No pets are allowed inside any buildings. Service animals are permitted inside with the proper identification.

Feel free to take photos of the Woodruff Arts Center exterior and inside the Memorial Arts Building Galleria (lobby area) for personal use. Please consult the photography policy below for information about other areas at the Arts Center.


Children should be supervised at all times. There should be no more than five children for every one adult.

Please keep your personal items with you at all times. The Woodruff Arts Center cannot be held responsible for missing, lost, or stolen items. If you recover an item that does not belong to you, please turn it in Security. If you have lost an item while visiting the Woodruff Arts Center, please contact us.

For the safety of patrons and employees, the Woodruff Arts Center prohibits the possession of weapons of any kind on Woodruff Art Center property, including outdoor spaces such as Sifly Piazza and Callaway Plaza. The same policy applies at Woodruff Arts Center-sponsored events, unless such possession or use is a requirement of the job (law enforcement). Weapons include firearms, explosives, knives, and other items that might be considered dangerous or that could cause harm.

If you see something unusual, please report it to a Security Officer.

Those who choose not to comply with these guidelines may be asked to leave The Woodruff.
