Atlanta Contemporary is ready again to put the ART in PARTY! This year is hardly just exhibitions either, we are talking about a block party where the whole Atlanta Contemporary 30,0000 square foot campus is brimming with art, food, drinks, music and so much more goodness.
For those somehow out of the loop, ART PARTY
is one of the most happening events of the year. Atlanta Contemporary
has been hosting ART PARTY, in this current iteration for six years, so they’ve gotten pretty good at immersing the neighborhood in a big ole’ pool of art happenings. On Saturday, August 25, 2018, from 7:00 pm – 11:59 pm, Atlanta Contemporary will turn their whole campus into a huge outdoor block party, which means we straight up shut the streets down for music, food, drinks, and, oh yeah, ART! The highlight for this year? CELEBRATING THE 45th ANNIVERSARY OF ATLANTA CONTEMPORARY BY PARTYING LIKES IT’S 1973
The Night's Happenings:
Art. Music. Food. Drinks
Join us for an amazing evening that underwrites Atlanta Contemporary’s vision to remain free admission, every day. Meander throughout the campus – entering at Bankhead Ave. Grab a quick bite at one of our many food stations and wind your way into the Pavilion – mix, mingle and move forward to enjoy a specialty cocktail provided by one of our esteemed Mixologists-in-Residence
Cool off inside and experience an array of exhibitions in the main galleries, Sliver Space
, and Chute Space
. Before you venture out, be sure to check out our SHOP of hand-selected artist made goods, books, and zines. Then step outside and venture into any and every studio – peruse, circulate, and SHOP – supporting our acclaimed artists participating in the Studio Artist Program
Join us for our annual fundraiser - a night in which our whole campus is transformed with programming on the pavilion, special presentations throughout the campus, and of course, Open Studios with our 14 artists in the Studio Artist Program.

ABOUT ATLANTA CONTEMPORARY:
Founded in 1973 as Nexus, a grassroots artists’ cooperative, Atlanta Contemporary has since become one of the Southeast's leading contemporary. We play a vital role in Atlanta’s cultural landscape by presenting six–10 exhibitions within four seasonal cycles each year, featuring consequential artists from the local, national, and international art scenes. We are one of the few local institutions that commission new works by artists, paying particular attention to artists of note who have not had a significant exhibition in the Southeast. We organize 50+ diverse educational offerings annually, unrivaled by other local organizations of our size. We are the only local organization to provide on-site subsidized studio space to working artists through our Studio Artist Program, removing cost as a barrier to the creative process.
