After reading both extremely positive and negative reviews of this art museum, I chose to visit with some trepidation. I am so glad I did. While small, the museum had many memorable pieces of art by some artists that I had not encountered in the past. I found myself so impressed with this museum's rotating collection that I decided to... More

Nice museum; love how they've repurposed an old building into a work of art in itself. SCAD students are available to guide and educate, and it's obvious that they love what they do. It poured down rain while we were inside which just added to the ambiance. What's better than prowling around a museum on a rainy day? Way to... More

Beautiful museum overall. Not a lot of actual pieces exhibited. Staff is made up of students who were very friendly. Great interactive laser installation when we visited. Juxtaposition of old and new architecture is great.

This architecturally excellent edifice hosts some great exhibitions. They are edgy and important, varied and valuable to the art community. In addition, the trendy café on premises has a modernistic vibe wherein you can peruse art books while sipping the beverage of your choice. The museum is on the campus of the art school but you won't find much publicity... More

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!!
