Museum
“Our local museum has something for art lovers and historians alike! The permanent history collection will take you through the history of the area. Temporary art exhibits and installations from local artists lead to a different experience each time you visit. The best part in my opinion, is the amazing kids play area. Perfect for young toddlers and up! ”

Sculpture Garden
“Originally designed and created as part of the Public Spaces Program of the Corporation for Olympic Development in Atlanta (CODA), Folk Art Park was the Georgia Department of Transportation’s first public art project. Reclaiming several leftover portions of two cement highway bridges above Downtown’s north-south interstate connector, the park embodies the mission of CODA’s Public Spaces Program, which was to create public settings commemorating the heritage of the city and surrounding region while aesthetically enhancing the urban environment. The installation is concentrated at the intersections of Piedmont Avenue and Baker Street and Courtland Street and Ralph McGill Boulevard. The park features the work of notable regional folk artists, including Eddie Owens Martin, R.A. Miller, James Harold Jennings, Vollis Simpson, Archie Byron and Howard Finster.”
