The Georgia Museum of Art was founded in 1945 and became open to the public in 1948. Both its facilities and collection have grown consistently since its early days. Today, the venue is in a contemporary building in the university’s Performing and Visual Arts Complex, housing 10,000-plus objects in its permanent collection. As an academic museum and, since 1982, the official art museum of Georgia, this venue provides a one-of-kind setting for couples to say “I do.”
The Georgia Museum of Art is located on the campus of the University of Georgia and can accommodate a variety of events, whether they're intimate gatherings or large receptions.
Booking a private event at the Georgia Museum of Art helps us keep admission free to all.
