The stunning Meier, porcelain-enameled building is the ideal setting for the High Museum of Art’s collection of over 12,000 pieces of art. A towering atrium soars to four interior levels, with the galleries moving from 18th and 19th-century collections near the ground floor to the cutting edge of contemporary art on the upper levels. Lower level galleries have been dedicated specifically to African art, photography, works on paper, and the works-on-paper study center.
Renzo Piano’s design of the new Wieland Pavilion and the Anne Cox Chambers Wing features a special roof system of 1,000 light scoops that capture northern light and filter it into the skyway galleries. The Wieland Pavilion houses part of the Museum’s modern and contemporary collection and the Anne Cox Chambers Wing features special collections.
