Devoted to the art of today, the contemporary Jepson Center links Telfair’s future with its past, unifying the museum’s three distinct sites.The building, designed by Moshe Safdie and opened to the public in 2006, features over 7,500 square feet of gallery space for major traveling exhibitions of contemporary art and installations of works from the permanent collection. Educational programming takes place in the 220-seat auditorium, community gallery, education studios, and ArtZeum—a unique, 3,500-square foot interactive gallery for children and families.

Love to see what the artist of today have to say. Great experience. When combined with the other two museums it gives a good history of the art and people of Savannah.

Was a nice way to spend a rainy day. Exhibits are varied and well staged. Because I had just visited the Bonaventure Cemetery, I enjoyed spending a lot of time with those displays. The Bird Girl Statue was also a "must" photo for me. I...More

The architecture is stunning and we enjoyed all the interesting exhibitions. Not a large museum but a highlight of our trip to Savannah.

The Bonaventure exhibit was very well done and I was really pleased to see the Bird Girl statue. It is a very compelling statue and they have it well placed to see the workmanship.

Telfair has 3 buildings, covered by 1 admission which is good for 1 week. I got to see Jepson and the Academy. Each building is fairly small for a museum, but they are interesting. Jepson is modern and has interesting exhibits. I was able to...More
