Savannah, GA – July 1, 2024 – In July 2023, Telfair Museums began welcoming visitors of all ages to the Telfair Children’s Art Museum (CAM) in the Jepson Center.  To celebrate this momentous milestone, little ones and their grown-ups are invited to celebrate the first birthday of the beloved mascot, Cammy the Chameleon, and the first anniversary of CAM, with a full schedule of programs and events.

CAM has quickly become a must-see destination for families seeking interactive and educational experiences in the arts in Savannah and the Southern coastal region. Designed in collaboration with design firm FREN, CAM features engaging exhibits across two floors, including a Family Lounge and Toddler Area that spark imagination in youthful minds and an immersive Landscape Gallery sparking the curiosity of art in modern technology.

Introducing the concepts of Impressionism to life through interactive displays and fundamentals of color, CAM captivates young minds and sparks a deeper appreciation for art.

In addition to a month of exciting programs and events, Telfair invites everyone to consider donating to support children’s programming and outreach. Donations of any size will be celebrated with a Cammy name card displayed at the Jepson Center.
