    Downtown
    Old Fourth Ward has murals. Midtown has the High Museum’s ever-changing interactive pieces, including the popular Trompos, the quirky spinning rock/booger on the corner of Peachtree and 10th streets, and the often-overlooked Noguchi Playscape at Piedmont Park.

But DOWNTOWN has South Broad Street’s vibrant upstart arts scene, the orphaned sculptures from the 1996 Summer Olympics, Elevate, Eyedrum, the Rialto, and some of Living Walls’ more daring murals. www.downtownatlanta.com. less...

    Though at this point there is hardly a glut of galleries, things are definitely on the rise on THE WESTSIDE. Yes, it’s home to Howell Mill Road’s retail corridor, but it’s also the artsy epicenter of the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, the King Plow Arts Center, the Sandler-Hudson Gallery and Octane Coffee, which has featured rotating shows of local artists. The district also is just a stone’s throw from the thriving Castleberry Hill art scene. less...
