Art Party is BACK! 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 artists in the Studio Artist Program.

The Night’s Happenings

Art. Music. Food. Drinks.

ART PARTY is a night to celebrate contemporary art in Atlanta. It’s the night where we recognize the range of voices necessary to create a vibrant arts community.

Join us for an amazing evening that underwrites Atlanta Contemporary’s vision to remain free admission, every day. Mix, mingle, move around and enjoy a specialty cocktail provided by one of our esteemed Mixologists-in-Residence. Dance the night away with the best DJs this city has to offer.

Grab a bite to eat from local restaurants and caterers, including select food vendors selling late-night snacks after 10pm.

Artists. Community. Collect. Support.

Meander throughout the campus and explore exhibitions in the main galleries, Sliver Space, and Chute Space. Before you venture out, be sure to check out our SHOP, featuring our hand-selected artist-made goods and books.

Then step outside and venture into any and every studio – peruse, learn, inquire, and collect – supporting our acclaimed artists participating in the Studio Artist Program.
