Beautiful architecture. Interesting exhibitions. We saw Alfredo Jaar and a fashion exhibition. But were very good.

“Not so much”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

It's true we went at a bad time as they were changing out one or two exhibits. They even gave us a discount but we didn't see one single thing worth seeing. The exhibits were terrible. 2 sets of Bad photos, and a collection of clothing that was suppose to be fashion that was just embarrassing. I can sew better than the construction of most of the garments on display and most of the designs were unwearable like a skirt with a big circle on it surrounding the crotch. Yuck.
The Marilyn Monroe exhibit had promise but needed more. I was really looking forward to seeing a lot of student work and was really disappointed.

“Part of a large SCAD complex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

I love the way the Savannah College of Arts & Design has taken old, historic buildings and turned them into college facilities -residence halls, cafeterias, museums, art exhibitions, admission centers, classrooms, store for selling student works of art, etc. This truly gives the students a life laboratory in which to practice and blend their skills and learning. The 70+ buildings SCAD has repurposed is a great partnership between an educational institution and the city - great foresight! It was wonderful to see students scurrying all around the city going to class.

“Must see!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

Wonderful place to see the results of talented students at SCAD. All kinds of mediums. I wish I had a room to put every single piece of art I saw because it would be hard to choose which piece to buy!!

“Worth it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

This was a great little museum that we went to and we're glad that we did. The artwork is all amazing and there were a couple displays in particular that really wowed us. It is all so unique and so great to see the artwork of students who work so hard on display. This was a great stop with a lot of cool things and if you go, you must check out the display with the Buddha and the tree. You'll know it when you see it!
