We’re growing! ArtZeum is permanently closed to make room for Telfair Children’s Art Museum, opening this Summer!

The exhibition Curators’ Choice based on the exciting, new publication Telfair Museums: Curators’ Choice (2021), is an opportunity to celebrate key pieces from the museum’s varied collection. These selected objects—such as the striking sugar basket created by the English female silversmith, Hester Bateman, or Frederick Carl Frieseke’s riotously colorful painting, The Garden Umbrella—shed light on the museum’s unique history and collecting practices.

You are the Curator!
Imagine you are collecting pieces of art for your museum collection. Consider the meaning the piece will have within your collection and to your audience. Select the piece of your choosing, and explain why you have decided to collect this piece.
