While it may be a great school, the actual location of the museum and the total lack of information from the staff had us forego even visiting. It's a shame for they could have a natural draw from visitors to the historic district.

This calls itself a museum but is really a building of art classrooms with 3 small rooms of artwork by former students. $8 senior admission fee, should have been free. Most of the art was what I call "put-on's"--the artist pulling your leg, art for the sake of shock. There were a few interesting things but the room of black-clad... More

Great museum for fahionistas because of the Andre Leon Talley gallery with shows curated by him. Oscar de la Renta recently finished, and until September 13, Vivienne Westwood is on display, The show is is an interesting combination of her fashions with art and furniture from the SCAD collection which compliment the curator's vision. It's one of the best fashion... More

Very much enjoyed our recent visit to the SCAD museum of Art. The building / complex itself is stunning. The collections on display were impressive. Perhaps my one negative comment would be that I wanted more - I was a little sad when I learned we'd exhausted the exhibits. Being from Britain, I'm privileged to enjoy the likes of Tate... More

The building is beautiful and well designed. The exhibits are all inviting and ever changing. The photographs are presented with thought. We loved the fashion presentation.

the SCAD Museum is a must. Everything, from the architecture to the exhibits to the student docents, is very special. The architect combined the remains of old railroad buildings with spectacular modern glass in a way that is exciting and beautiful. The exhibits are always changing, always unusual, always both fun and challenging. And it is always a great pleasure... More

Visited after hearing that Andre Leon Talley had a gallery in the museum and the newest exhibit was Vivianne Westwood. Not only impressed with this exhibit, but the museum itself! Definitely a great way to spend an afternoon even if it's only a hour or two.

A lovely spot to get an injection of modern art in this gentil city steeped in history. Small but mighty, the exhibits included 50 dresses by Oscar de la Renta, a beguiling installation composed of arranged filtered cigarettes, and a wood and painted structure that looked impenetrable but actually invited you inside. Savannah is making the most of its art... More

Just visited this fabulous place where you are surrounded by the air of young talent! The Oscar de la Renta exhibit that is currently in residence is fabulous . Do not miss the exhibit of the huge tiger skin made of cigarettes! Walk around it to see how the colors change according to the placemen of the filters and/or tobacco... More
