Be among the first to share our big reveal as you enjoy gallery tours, dinner, wine, and dancing on Saturday, October 13.

This summer, the High Museum is undergoing the first gallery renovation since its transformative expansion opened in 2005. This project takes place in conjunction with a major reinstallation of the Museum’s permanent collection. We will reimagine our gallery spaces, showcase the collection’s growth and strengths, and improve accessibility—all while providing engaging experiences for visitors. When the galleries reopen in the fall, expect to see old favorites, recent acquisitions, and previously stored artworks displayed in new ways.

For more information, please contact Casey Murphy at casey.murphy@high.org or 404-733-4424. Online ticket sales will open at a later date.
