About Telfair Contemporaries

Telfair Museums is excited to announce the launch of a new member affinity group with a mission-based focus to support the growing modern and contemporary collection and exhibition programs.

This group, Telfair Contemporaries (TC), will engage directly with Erin Dunn, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art. Led by contemporary art enthusiasts, TC welcomes anyone with an interest in modern and contemporary art. TC members will share an enthusiasm for travel and meeting contemporary artists in their studio environments, contemporary art, and Telfair Museums, with a mission to promote the museum’s goals and its commitment to developing awareness, understanding, and appreciation of modern and contemporary art.

Telfair Contemporaries provides its members 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.
