Woodruff Arts Center is home to three of Atlanta’s major cultural venues — Alliance Theatre, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the High Museum of Art.
The High, a general interest art museum, offers visitors rotating special exhibitions as well as its permanent collection that’s always on view. Exhibitions across various types of art rotate periodically with larger ones running for about nine to 12 weeks.
“We have photography, modern contemporary art, European art and American art,” said Marci Davis, manager of public relations at the High. “We also have a fantastic folk and self-taught art collection. That’s something really unique to the High. We also have a fantastic decorative arts and design collection as well as African arts.”
Special exhibitions are in those general areas as well.
“So, it might be a European art exhibition or photography, or decorative arts or contemporary design,” Davis said. “There’s a lot to see both in our collection and our special exhibitions.”
Groups of 15 or more get discounts on self-guided and docent-led tours. Tour options include a highlights tour that’s an overview of the permanent collection, an Adventures in Architecture Tour, and tours focusing on African art, women in art and black history.
Free bus parking is available, and each member of the group gets a discount in the museum shop.
Also at the Woodruff Arts Center, the award-winning Atlanta Symphony Orchestra presents classical, pops and holiday concerts each year. Groups receive a discount and a free ticket for every 20 purchased for most Delta Classical concerts.
At the Alliance Theatre, winner of a Regional Theatre Tony Award for excellence in programming, education and community engagement, visitors can enjoy significant theatrical productions. The Alliance is considered the leading production theater in the Southeast. Groups get discounts ranging from 15 to 35%.
