Bold Expressions: The Collection of Lorlee and Arnold Tenenbaum

Jepson Center
Bold Expressions: The Collection of Lorlee and Arnold Tenenbaum celebrates collecting and living with original works of art through a presentation of the collection of the late Lorlee and Arnold Tenenbaum. Remembered for their business acumen, love of community, and generous philanthropic efforts, the Tenenbaums were deeply invested in art and education, which extended to their colossal efforts to raise funds to construct Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center.
