ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
The High Museum of Art, founded in 1905 as the Atlanta Art Association, is the leading art
museum in the Southeastern United States. With over 11,000 works of art in its permanent
collection, the High Museum of Art has an extensive anthology of 19th and 20th century American art; significant holdings of European paintings and decorative art; a growing collection of African American art; and burgeoning collections of modern and contemporary art, photography and African art. The High is also dedicated to supporting and collecting works by Southern artists and is distinguished as the only major museum in North America to have a curatorial department specifically devoted to the field of folk and self-taught art. The High’s Media Arts department produces acclaimed annual film series and festivals of foreign,
independent and classic cinema. In November 2005, the High opened three new buildings by
architect Renzo Piano that more than doubled the Museum’s size, creating a vibrant “village for
the arts” at the Woodruff Arts Center in Midtown Atlanta.
