COVID-19 Update Atlanta Contemporary Art Center

COVID-19 Update from Atlanta Contemporary's Executive Director Veronica Kessenich.

Atlanta Contemporary

Veronica Kessenich

Executive Director


Since temporarily closing its doors to the public on March 13, Atlanta Contemporary has presented more than 75 virtual programs including Contemporary Talks, Contemporary Kids, Friday Art Making Pop-Ups, Home Is Where the Art Is, DJ Spotify Playlists, and promoting specialty cocktails through its Mixologist-in-Residence program.

Atlanta Contemporary has made significant upgrades to its HVAC system, which incorporates “bi-polar ionization technology” to generate electrically charged particles with extra electrons, thereby rendering the particles harmlessly inert. “This technology works on viruses and bacteria in the air stream,” says executive director Veronica Kessenich.

On July 7, Atlanta Contemporary reopened to the public with timed tickets and limited entry. Check the museum website for details.

· Hours: Tuesday through Saturday, 12-5 p.m., and Sunday, 2-4 p.m.

· Masks required
