Happenings

Never Spoken Again: Rogue Stories of Science and Collections

Jepson Center

Re-Cor-Dare: Sauda Mitchell

Jepson Center
Re-Cor-Dare is a solo #art912 exhibition of Savannah-based artist Sauda Mitchell (American, b. 1981). Mitchell’s prints, paintings, and artist books serve as compelling visual responses to her sustained engagement with archival collection materials. In researching personal papers, photographs, artifacts, and curated digital collections, her work explores thematic topics of study relating to the Black experience. Utilizing QR codes, selected works link to digitized collection materials focusing on their ability as teaching tools recalling stories embedded within the African American collective memory.

Before Midnight: Bonaventure and the Bird Girl

Telfair Academy
Telfair Museums presents Sylvia Shaw Judson’s iconic sculpture Bird Girl within the context of the history and art of Bonaventure Cemetery.

Complex Uncertainties: Artists in Postwar America

Jepson Center
The rise of America as a world superpower after WWII created a distinctly individual and identifiably “American” approach to artmaking. Complex Uncertainties is an evolving exhibition grounded by works in Telfair’s modern and contemporary collection that reveals some of the ways in which historic events challenge artists to construct narratives and react to power.

Sugar

Jepson Center
Explore the sweet culinary habits of Savannahians in this fun exhibition dedicated to the consumption of sugar in the port city. Using furnishings and portraits from Telfair Museums’ permanent collection, this unique display gives visitors a glimpse into humans’ connection to sugar and its complicated history. Porcelain and silver were shipped from Europe and beyond into the Port of Savannah, providing the elite of this city with purchasing options far surpassing those of any inland towns of the 19th century.
