The discovery of a new boson in 2012 with a mass of about 126 GeV/c^2 has revolutionized the program of experimental particle physics over the next few decades. All indications have so far been that this particle is consistent with the Standard Model Higgs Boson. However, we know the Standard Model is an incomplete description of nature. The existence of other forms of matter, such as Dark Matter, would cry for additional sources of fundamental mass in nature, such as additional Higgs Bosons. In this talk, I will motivate the search for additional Higgs Bosons and discuss a few highlights from recent ATLAS searches for such particles.
