Beautiful architecture. Interesting exhibitions. We saw Alfredo Jaar and a fashion exhibition. But were very good.

It's true we went at a bad time as they were changing out one or two exhibits. They even gave us a discount but we didn't see one single thing worth seeing. The exhibits were terrible. 2 sets of Bad photos, and a collection of clothing that was suppose to be fashion that was just embarrassing. I can sew better... More

I love the way the Savannah College of Arts & Design has taken old, historic buildings and turned them into college facilities -residence halls, cafeterias, museums, art exhibitions, admission centers, classrooms, store for selling student works of art, etc. This truly gives the students a life laboratory in which to practice and blend their skills and learning. The 70+ buildings... More

Wonderful place to see the results of talented students at SCAD. All kinds of mediums. I wish I had a room to put every single piece of art I saw because it would be hard to choose which piece to buy!!

It is all so unique and so great to see the artwork of students who work so hard on display. This was a great stop with a... More

The architecture of the building is a mixture of old and new which is quite impressive. It sits right besides the school of art itself, so lots of students are available to answer questions about the exhibitions. There is one which you can interact with by hammering coins on a huge tree slice.

Overall one's experience at the museum is short. I really enjoyed the installations we were able to view. They were well curated, the building is beautiful to walk around in, and the staff was friendly and willing to chat. However, the total amount of work up didn't take us long to view and really left us wishing for more. I... More

The building itself is beautiful. I enjoyed looking at the building and taking pictures of it more than anything else. My partner and I are both Arts graduates and it took us about 35 minutes to view the exhibits and videos. We didn't just walk by and leave. We took time to examine each art, read the information cards and... More
