Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) is a private, degree-granting university with locations in Savannah, Atlanta, Hong Kong, and Lacoste, France. Amidst Savannah's Southern Charm is a collection of campus buildings scattered throughout the city. The main campus is at 601 Turner Boulevard, but there are locations 227 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd., and a satellite building at 342 Bull Street, at Madison Square in the Historic District. Students’ art and design are displayed, and in the adjacent shop, for sale. Students take time to tell of their inspiration—and aspirations. The clever concepts incorporate myriad materials, texture, traditional paintings, sculpture, jewelry, and pop art. I stumbled into this hideaway, only to learn it was the SCAD campus, but visitors are allowed to browse—much to my delight.
Some reviewers have opined about the cost of the students' art for sale, or worse, their inability to properly interpret meaning. In 2006, Christie's auctioned Andy Warhol's 1962 "Campbell Soup Can" painting for $11.7 million. It was not considered "art" in 1962, but someone placed a considerable value on it. How many undiscovered "Warhol" students are there at SCAD? Vincent Van Gogh never sold a painting, so I guess his contemporaries did not consider his work art. Do you?
