Enjoy a FREE evening of art and adventure at Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center for the third annual College Night! For one night only, the Jepson Center is open after hours exclusively for college students to explore our latest exhibitions, create in our studios, and interact with art-minded peers. This year, engage in a conversation with artist Derek Larson, enjoy music provided by 97.3 KISSFM, and don’t miss the photo op in the atrium!

Activities include:

+ Curator-led exhibition tour (6pm): Learn about one of the museum’s newest exhibitions, Jaume Plensa: Talking Continents, during a tour with our Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art, Rachel Reese.

+ Artist talk with Derek Larson (6:30pm): Join Derek Larson in the auditorium for a discussion of his feature-length animation Très Mall, followed by a screening.

+ The “Totally Radical Tour” (7pm): See the museum like never before and win prizes while exploring Keita Takahashi: Zooming Out and Complex Uncertainties.

+ Artmaking in the Drop-In Studio: Get inspired by our current exhibitions and create your own piece of art to take home.

+ Discounted student memberships: Get a special discount on a student membership when you sign up at our membership booth. Your one-year membership gives you access to our three sites, world-class exhibitions, and members-only programming and events!
