A Living Canvas

A never-ending rotation of vibrant street art, public exhibitions and festivals of all sorts make the city of Atlanta a living, breathing work of art.

Atlanta isn’t just home to famous artwork — it’s a haven for creatives.

Home to world-renowned institutes like the High Museum of Art, the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art and the Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta is a mecca for fine arts. Whether you’re a novice or an aficionado, Atlanta’s flourishing art scene has something to offer everyone.

Actors can catch a show at 7 Stages, the Tony Award-winning Alliance Theatre, or at any of the many community theatres, like Dad's Garage and the Shakespeare Tavern. For fashionistas, there’s Atlanta International Fashion Week, and film buffs can rub shoulders with celebrities like Josh Brolin and Margaret Cho at the Atlanta Film Festival. The musically inclined can catch a performance by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, which has won more Grammys than any organization of its kind. If you still find yourself looking for inspiration, head over to the Woodruff Arts Center, the third largest arts center in the nation. There, you can stroll the halls of the award-winning High Museum of Art, and bask in the company of Monet, Picasso, Rothko and more.

In Atlanta, art isn’t confined by gallery walls — it spills into the streets. Thanks to well-loved urban art projects like Living Walls, Elevate and Art on the BeltLine, murals by street artists from around the world line the city walls.

Whether you’re a professional artist or just starting out, the creative community in Atlanta has something to offer you. Beginners can take classes in oil painting, bead weaving and metalsmithing from the Spruill Center for the Arts. For the seasoned artist, WonderRoot offers access to its darkroom, digital media lab and ceramics and recording studios. Visit an exhibit at dk Gallery, take an Art on the Atlanta BeltLine bike tour to admire the street art, or support local artists by purchasing handcrafted prints and jewelry at Young Blood Boutique.

Atlanta's art scene may be ever changing, but one thing is for certain — there’s always something new to see.
