It is hard to miss this ultra-modern, stark white structure on Peachtree 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 of most important touring collections as well, hosting exhibitions featuring artists like Pablo Picasso and Norman Rockwell. The High also displays old prints of Abe Lincoln and of General William Tecumseh Sherman.
