Bird girl

Can someone tell me if the "Bird Girl" statue is located at Telfair Museum or at the Savannah museum of art? We would really like to see her when we visit . Thanks!

The Telfair and the Jepson are under the same management and you can get a combination ticket.

Please see both while you are here, they are worth the time.

There is no truth to the rumor that people were chipping parts of the base away to keep as mementos. The statue was moved to keep the grave it was marking from turning into a tourist attraction.

The Jepson Center is the contemporary art portion of the Telfair Museum complex and is just adjacent (beside, across the street) from the Telfair Museum that houses the classical collections in a historic property. On, of course, Telfair Square, just off Broughton Street...the north/south street is Barnard. This IS Savannah's museum of art, though there are other wonderful galleries and museum in the historic district. The Bird Girl is in the "old", classical section of the Telfair. There are, then, lots of places where you can get more reproduction souvenirs of all sizes (key chains to full-sized replicas) than you'd ever want/need. Some are good and some not.
