August 5

In August, Telfair celebrates 100 years of art instruction in Savannah’s public schools with an exhibition of work by current elementary, middle, and high school art teachers working in the Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools System. Lila Cabaniss, an artist, art teacher, and Telfair supporter, is said to have initiated the first art classes in the public schools system in 1915, and she became the first full-time art teacher in 1927. She was also the first to organize school field trips to Telfair Museums, an education program that endures today and benefits thousands of Savannah students each year.

One Hundred Years of Harmony opens

August 26
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

Artist Gari Melchers played an invaluable role in shaping the collection of Telfair Museums. During his tenure as fine arts advisor from 1906 to 1916, Melchers facilitated the purchase of many of
the best-known works in the permanent collection, including iconic canvases by artists such as George Bellows, Childe Hassam, Robert Henri, and many others. Yet Telfair did not acquire a single
work by Melchers himself until after he stepped down from his official role in 1916. To commemorate that occasion, Telfair’s board arranged for the purchase of Melchers’s The Unpretentious
Garden, a painting that is now one of the most beloved works in the museum’s collection.
