Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art

Marietta, GA




The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art was founded in 1990 by visionary art patrons; it occupies a renovated historic Greek Revival building that opened as the Cobb County United States Post Office in 1909. As a leading visual arts center, it is the only metropolitan Atlanta fine arts museum focusing on 19th- and 20th-century American art.

The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art continues to acquire works for its permanent collections. The museum also features ambitious special exhibitions throughout the year. Tours, lectures, workshops, classes, art camp, Family Day, art festivals and other educational, social, and cultural opportunities are also offered. Dedication to fulfilling its slogan "building community through art" is evidenced throughout the museum's diversity of activities.

The museum's mission is to provide exposure to the visual arts, with a primary emphasis on collecting, preserving, and presenting American works through curated exhibitions, outreach programs, and social activities. The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art is proud of the expanding educational opportunities it brings to the community.

The museum is located at 30 Atlanta Street in Marietta, just south of the Marietta Square. Please see the museum's web site for admission prices and hours.
