Now entering its fourth decade, Savannah’s SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) inspired downtown Arts District continues to lead the way for art lovers along coastal Georgia’s designated Creative Coast. Our downtown galleries and artists are among our most enduring attractions with transformative works of art in all their mediums. The historic district represents the sweet spot in coastal Georgia when it comes to connecting collectors and art connoisseurs with the artists you can meet up with in our Savannah Getaways Gallery Hop through this relatively compact area. Many of the millions of annual visitors that come to Art Destination Savannah coincidentally are art lovers as well. And plenty of these art aficionados make it a point upon their arrival to look in on key gallery venues, museums, artists’ studios, shops and restaurants strategically situated throughout our vibrant art community.
International artists working in conjunction with Savannah Museums and Savannah Galleries is a given as in any arts community. What sets our regional arts center apart from other art destination cities are our accomplished cadre of Savannah artists that are forever busy delivering their latest up to the minute creation. You can find something as eclectic as sidewalk art in Forsyth Park, art created exclusively for Savannah's oldest artist owned Gallery on River Street, the artistically gifted artists at Chroma Art Gallery facing Ellis Square a mere half block away from numerous other art studio/galleries in City Market like our friend Chuck Hamilton at AT Hun Gallery, take advantage of plenty of opportunities to observe Street Performance Art Buskers entertaining pedestrians along cobblestoned River Walk or the very latest presentation at Savannah’s own stylized Modern Museum of Art, The Jepson Center.
So if looking to purchase tasty photographic images taken by an award winning National Geographic photographer or seeking top drawer works of internationally acclaimed artists, Historic Savannah is the place to cover all your artful needs in your own customized Gallery Hop Getaway.
