Hammonds House Museum

Landmarks & Historical Sites, Arts & Entertainment, Arts, Museums

Description

Hammonds House Museum and Resource Center of African American Art is a fine arts venue whose mission is to preserve, exhibit, and increase public awareness about the contributions that visual artists of African descent have made to world culture. Hammonds House Museum is the former home of Otis Thrash Hammonds, a black physician who collected works by artists of African descent. Built around 1872, the ornate Victorian house made its debut as a public museum in 1988, two years after Hammonds' death. Some of the earlier pieces date to the mid-1800s, including paintings from Haiti and ceremonial masks from Africa. In addition to the permanent collection of about 250 works, the museum features rotating exhibits by contemporary black artists from all over the world. To foster the museum's educational mission, each exhibit kicks off with a talk given by a knowledgeable curator or the artist. Artists also often participate in panel discussions and workshops. The museum hosts a number of otherevents as well, including concerts, readings, educational seminars, summer camps and even wine tastings.

Superb curators of relevant African history exhibitions. A deliberate detailed and in-depth portrait of Afro-Panamanian Alters and Shrines is a must see presentation of a story worth telling.

Its kinda boring. I came here from Groupon and thought it would be a big museum of a house, but it turns out its just an average house with art inside. It only takes you about 45 seconds to finish looking through the whole house.

I was on set of the Mike Epps movie "Meet The Blacks 2" aka "The House Next Door". The museum was one of the homes in the film. I didnt really get to see how the museum is originally set up unfortunately.

This museum and cultural center presents an array of historic and contemporary art from African American and African diaspora artists. The museum also hosts openings, thought provoking artist talks, and community discussions related to exhibits. Come visit this important institution in Atlanta's West End!

During the 2nd winter break we bought groupons to take the children to museums in the Atlanta area. Our first stop was the Hammond House. We almost left after knocking for 20 minutes, finally a gentleman answered. The board of directors were having a meeting and they did not hear us knocking. The displays were interesting, we did not get a tour so we were just reading the cards on the wall next to the art exhibits. I appreciate the effort put in, it looks like they could use funding to spruce it up a bit.

Former home of the late Otis Thrash Hammond. Presents an African American Art gallery museum situated in Historic West End Village. This African American community is considered the beginning of the city of Atlanta. Here Atlanta, through southern Jim Crow system of laws, the black communities were mostly forced to the western portion of Atlanta, today, making this area one of the wealthiest African American community in America.

The Hammomds House Museum is dedicated to the ancestors of the late 1800's up until 1985 with the last owner of the Hammomd House, the late great

Dr. Otis T. Hammonnd MD.

Exhibits rotate through out the year, so there is always a different center piece to talk about. Rich Pan African heritage will surely entertain you through our tour visit here

Grand asset to the community. Go. Support artists (usually local). Ask questions. Learn about the house, it's former owners, the neighborhood. Worth the trip. NOTE: There's a parking lot behind the house, but a one-way street complicates getting in there - use Google Maps directions to get there by making the destination the parking lot out back!

Great museum! I would plan it to do with something else. Our visit was less than an hour. The home it's located in is beautiful, and to park free anywhere in Atlanta is divine! The exhibits were interesting as well.
