High Museum Exhibitions and Collections
Stent Family Wing
We like to start off in the Stent Family Wing, which houses the High’s more than 16,000 objects in its growing permanent collection.
Level 2 holds some Special Exhibitions, European Art including pieces by Monet and Renoir, and Decorative Arts including a collection of Meissen Porcelain and English Ceramics. Level 3 holds American Art and Decorative Arts. The Skyway Level holds African Art and Folk and Self-Taught Art, as well as a bridge to the Wieland Pavilion.
We then cross the bridge to the Weiland Pavilion, working our way down through the rotating Special Exhibitions.
This big space is where the larger pieces of modern and contemporary art are displayed. I’m always like abstract art with bright colors. Kevin is a fan of the giant concave dish sculpture by Anish Kapoor.
But Kevin is not always impressed with modern art.
Anne Cox Chambers Wing
The Anne Cox Chambers Wing is where you’ll find more Special Exhibitions on display.
The Lobby Level contains the Entrance and Special Exhibitions. Level 2 is also dedicated to Special Exhibitions. The Skyway Level contains additional Modern and Contemporary Art as well as the Blackbox Theatre and a bridge to the Weiland Pavilion.
