Founded in 1993, 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. The Wine Auction is the top charity fundraising event in Atlanta, the tenth largest charity wine auction in the U.S., and the number one charity wine auction benefiting the arts.
The funds generated from the auction, which amount to more than $23 million over the last 23 years, are a significant contribution to the Museum’s exhibitions and educational programming. Proceeds help to make possible special exhibitions such as Gordon Parks: Segregation Story and Habsburg Splendor: Masterpieces from Vienna’s Imperial Collections. The funds raised also support dynamic youth education programs, drawing large numbers of schoolchildren each year.
