The Age of Armor: Treasures from the Higgins Armory Collection at the Worcester Art Museum

Jepson Center
Organized by the Worcester Art Museum and curated from its impressive Higgins Armory Collection, this exhibition explores the ways in which armor was used and transformed due to technological innovations and evolving styles of warfare from the Middle Ages to the 17th century. Visitors will discover the different and often surprising stories embedded in these powerful objects — many painstakingly engineered, elegantly designed, and treasured as the expression of their owners’ taste, sophistication, and prowess.

Richmond Barthé: Harlem Renaissance Sculptor

Jepson Center
Telfair celebrates Richmond Barthé (1901–1989), one of the foremost African American artists of the 20th century, with an exhibition of two dozen of his finest bronze statues, including elegant depictions of dancers, workers, religious figures, and icons in Black history.

Created Beasts: Sculpture by Ulysses Davis

Jepson Center
Telfair presents the first exhibition to focus on depictions of creatures, real and imagined, in the work of noted Savannah wood sculptor Ulysses Davis (1914–1990). Born in Fitzgerald, Georgia, Davis taught himself to carve wood as a child and relocated to Savannah to establish a barbershop where he created his art. This exhibition explores Davis’ sculptures of beasts inspired by biblical stories, as well as fantastic creatures that sprang entirely from his fertile imagination.


Jepson Center
The eighth annual Boxed In/Break Out features a series of photo collages by Polish American artist, designer, and professor Wioleta Kaminska. Viewers encounter the work as six large-scale, digitally manipulated photographs of merged Icelandic landscapes.
