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

Interesting exhibits, personable knowledgable students. Oscar de la Renta exhibit cool. The outside seating area is very relaxing too. It's a small one story museum, you can see it all in 1-2 hours.

By chance, I saw on theToday Show that there was an exhibit off some of his gowns. My daughter & I were lucky to view the gowns yesterday & were star struck by their beauty! My mother & grandmothers were both expert seamstresss and I could envision both of them spending an afternoon enjoying the quality of the expert designs... More

The art on display was beautiful, and there were people along the way to answer any questions you have. They were very polite and were very knowledgeable of the pieces!

Before the weather got warmer, I visited the SCAD Museum of Art for one of my 'inside' things to do. These short term exhibits include designs by Oscar de la Renta, which was the draw for me, but I found all of these exhibits to be amazing and thought provoking. It is another 'must -see' in this great city of... More

The admission is $10 a person and it takes about 10-15 minutes to see all exhibits. It is a large space with very little to see. One of our tour guides recommended the "restaurant" for lunch. It is a little room with premade sandwiches, coffee, tea, and vending machine like food.

Employees failed to tell us that they only have two small rooms of art from two artists. Not cool dudes.

I would have given them one star except for the very talkative and informative person at the front desk. And the really cool touch screen table. It turns out there are times that they redo the exhibits here. And the day we were there they were redoing ALL the exhibits. Ok there was one small section with a few paintings... More

The SCAD Museum is a jewel! So glad we opted to go. We have known about the terrific school for years but had not seen the museum. It is a lovely clean space - a bit awkward as it is a long rectangle but the site required the design. The exhibits do change regularly so check out the website before... More
