Atlanta’s Cyclorama


Measuring 42 feet in height and 358 feet in circumference, Atlanta’s Cyclorama is one of the largest paintings in the country.

The painting is one of only two cycloramic murals – massive paintings hung circularly for viewing from the inside – in the U.S. Painted in 1886 by a group of Milwaukee artists, Cyclorama depicts the Civil War battle fought near Atlanta on July 22, 1864.

Previously housed in Grant Park, the painting was moved to the Atlanta History Center in 2015. The History Center plans to complete construction on the Lloyd and Mary Ann Whitaker Cyclorama Building by late 2016.
