Atlanta Contemporary Art Center was the perfect choice as a venue for my wedding. The building and outdoor pavilion was beautiful, and the staff was super helpful. They were also very up front about any charges, and available to answer all my questions.Sent on 01/21/2016

The ACAC was a GREAT place to have our wedding and reception. Our guests are still gushing over how unique and interesting the space was. Khadijah was the nicest and most amazing site coordinator to work with. You won't get better service and value anywhere else. I highly recommend it.Sent on 08/20/2012

Beautiful Venue! Love the facility and the location. We were able to have a very unique wedding event that flowed from the ceremony on the front pavillion, to cocktail hour inside the gallery, to dinner on the back pavillion, to dancing into the night back inside the gallery. Guests commented on the great flow of the night. I was happy to have worked with a wedding planner hired separately than the venue coordinator so as to supplement the day-of services. Great overall experience!Sent on 11/18/2012
