A Little About Us

The High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction is the largest fundraising event for the High Museum of Art, the leading art museum in the southeastern United States. Grossing over $2.6 million in 2019, the Wine Auction is the top charity fundraising event in Atlanta, one of the largest charity wine auctions in the U.S., and the number one charity wine auction benefiting the arts. The Wine Auction has generated more than $35 million over the last 29 years!

Funds raised by the auction support the High Museum’s continuing mission to provide educational programs and various outreach efforts to local youth and to consistently deliver world-class art exhibitions that make Atlanta proud. As we work to manage the impacts of COVID-19, the High Museum needs your support now more than ever! The American Alliance of Museums reports that up to 33% of U.S. museums risk closing permanently due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The leadership team at the High Museum works hard to be sure they are fiscally responsible. In fact, the Museum has finished in the black for the past 28 years in a row. Supporting the Museum’s single, largest fundraising event will have a direct impact on operations and help ensure that the High remains a leader in the art world and a beacon in the city of Atlanta.
