'The Art of William O. Golding' Opening Lecture(March 31, 2022) Telfair opens the largest exhibition to date devoted to William O. Golding, an African American seaman who made memory drawings of ships and ports while in Savannah’s Marine Hospital during the 1930s.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a richly illustrated catalogue, the first devoted to this significant American artist.
The Art of William O. Golding: Hard Knocks, Hardships and Lots of Experience is organized by Telfair Museums and curated by Harry H. DeLorme, director of education and senior curator.
Exhibition support is provided by Inge Brasseler and a special grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
