Q: Is there a museum in Atlanta that focuses exclusively on art from Africa and African-Americans?

A: The city’s varied art collection includes two options to see African art up close: Hammonds House Museum and the High Museum of Art. Hammonds House, in a Victorian home in Atlanta’s West End, displays the late Dr. Otis Thrash Hammonds’ extensive art collection, with more than 250 pieces. You also will find a focus on African art at the city’s largest art museum – the High Museum of Art in Midtown. Its more than 700 African art pieces include those from the ancient to contemporary, with more than 450 works from Fred and Rita Richman’s collection. You’ll find works such as sculptures from central and west Africa created between 1850 and 1950, and Yoruba masks, beadwork, ceramic arts, metal work and figurative sculpture. Sounds like a perfect way to spend the day indoors and out of the cold.
