  • Spacious layout, this regional college art gallery could be challenging to those expected a traditional art museum with art from past centuries. We only expererienced contemporary works there. If there was more upstairs, we weren't aware of it. The students who staff the entrance were very kind and eager to inform us of the Savannah College of Art and Design concept of combining the current times and experiences in tandem with the old. I loved the entrance walls with 18th century art and contemporary images that reflected the similarities of people. Inside the museum, I found the student docents to be mostly helpful and eager to share their outlooks on the art, explaining the interpretation to us if we asked. I think I offended one when I offered a different interpretation, but I was really just curious. In the long hallway on the back outside of the building were some interesting installations. Again, when we asked, the docent was very eager to tell us about the installation process and more. Overall, it was a very good visit. Took 45 minutes - hour, and we passed on the exhibit on the opposite side of the lobby. There's a pretty little coffee shop, very modern. We didn't buy anything, but it looked interesting.
  • Despite being a small museum with not too many exhibits, the artwork available is always interesting and varied based on SCAD's majors. Beautiful interior design and kind, informative staff.
  • If you're a graphic designer, you should consider this fine college.
  • It's not huge, but the exhibitions that are here are REALLY fantastic. Photography, 3-d design, artworks, sculpture, fashion...each exhibition was one of the best I've seen anywhere and I only wish we could return again and again! Also half to say the staff (who I think were mostly SCAD students?) were engaged, friendly and really informative about each artist's process and explaining the artwork.
  • Not the most extensive art museum but very good with interesting exhibits
