Chastain Arts Center has provided exceptional art classes and exhibits for over 35 years making it Atlanta's oldest community arts center. They offer classes for all ages and for all skill levels in a variety of fine arts and crafts.
Part of City of Atlanta Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs, Chastain Arts Center is housed in a building with a rich historical past. Fulton County constructed the buildings now known as Chastain Arts Center and Galloway School between 1901 and 1911. The buildings were originally almshouses (or poorhouses) for the elderly, disabled, and unemployable. Thomas Henry Morgan, known as the 'Dean of Atlanta's architects', designed the two Neo-Classical buildings.
The City Gallery at Chastain exhibits a rotating schedule of art work by local, national, and international artists. Sponsored by the City of Atlanta, Office of Cultural Affairs, this charming Buckhead location is convenient to the idyllic grounds of verdant Chastain Park, one of the area's most pleasant civic greens. Exhibitions change seasonally, and you can check the current roster for new displays.
