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.

Boogie the night away with DJs Extremely Michael, Cozy Shawn, and Ree De La Vega.

Grab a quick bite from Eclipse di Luna, Sun in My Belly, 4Rivers Smokehouse, or one of our other groovy caterers. Late-night vendors Doggy Dog, and Good Food Truck start selling their wares at 10pm.

Mix, mingle, move around and enjoy a specialty cocktail provided by one of our esteemed Mixologists-in-Residence: Cole Just, Amanda Sutton, Keyatta Mincey, and Ryan Treadwell. If hops are more your style, sample a brew made just for Atlanta Contemporary by Omaha Brewing Company.

Artists. Community.

Cool off inside and experience an array of new exhibitions in the main galleries, Sliver Space, and Chute Space. Enjoy artworks from Charles Harlan, Jacolby Satterwhite, Allison Janae Hamilton, The Sunroom, and more on their opening night.

Let your creative juices flow with coloring pages drawn by Atlanta artists presented by ColorATL.

Meet Molly Rimswell, our Queen of the Night.

Before you venture out, be sure to check out our SHOP, featuring the team from Discrit who have curated a collection of publications sharing the theme of social issues relating to art theory, plus our 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.
