LocationHigh Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia
This collaborative experiment invited Atlanta, its families, and its artists into the design process to reimagine the High Museum’s family-focused space.
Museums around the world have been undergoing a seismic shift from places where people go to observe art to places where people go to interact with, and even create, art. We reteamed with the High Museum, a longtime client, to craft an interactive space where it could explore new ideas and activities with its visitors.
The museum’s first foray into public prototyping, Art Lab consisted of a series of installations, designed by Second Story, that let children and adults create and imagine together by taking a playful, tactile approach to art education. A former gallery space became a living laboratory, and the High gleaned valuable insights directly from the local community to inform the redesign of its Greene Family Learning Gallery.
