Besides its vast permanent collection, the museum hosts temporary exhibitions such as Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis (through September 29), which marks the first time Johannes Vermeer's masterful painting will be exhibited in the southeast.
High Museum of Art
As one of the leading art museums in the southeast, the High Museum of Art boasts a vast collection of 13,000 pieces from cultures all around the globe, housed within an architecturally stunning building designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Meier. The museum's permanent collection includes nineteenth- and twentieth-century American art as well as European paintings from artists such as Claude Monet and decorative pieces, with growing collections of modern art and selections from Africa. Its curators take special pride in the museum's continued support of southern artists and in its range of folk works by self-taught artists who learned through extensive practice or by sleeping with Da Vinci's notebooks under their pillow.
Membership to the High grants exclusive access to previews of temporary exhibits as well as educational programs for kids and their families. The museum also hosts a film series, and its three restaurants fuel further art-ogling while helping to wean visitors off of a strict paint-chip diet.
