Telfair Museums launched Telfair Contemporaries in 2021 with a mission-based focus to support the growing modern and contemporary collection and exhibition programs.
TC members share an enthusiasm for meeting contemporary artists in their studio environments and are committed to developing awareness, understanding, and appreciation of modern and contemporary art. Members enjoy exclusive programs and educational opportunities, including studio visits with contemporary artists in Savannah and the region, day trips to attend exhibitions, and possible national travel opportunities. Their memberships raise funds to support lectures, artist opportunities, exhibition publications, and acquisitions for the expanding collection.
TC benefits include:
• Subscription to Telfair Contemporaries quarterly e-Newsletter
• Invitations to select private previews of Telfair exhibitions and programs
• Curator-led tours of contemporary exhibitions
• Invitations to regional studio visits
• Invitations to contemporary artist lectures with opportunities to meet the artist
• Group travel opportunities
