Yes Virginia there is an Arts District in Savannah, well sort of. 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 arts destination cities are our accomplished cadre of Savannah artists that are forever busy delivering their latest up to the minute creation, be it something as eclectic as sidewalk art in Forsyth Park, art created exclusively for artist owned galleries on River Street, performance art outdoors in City Market or the very latest presentation in Savannah’s prestigious newest museum. The Jepson Center for the Arts, a 64,000 square foot state of the art Museum located on Telfair Square adjacent to her 119+ year old sister, the Telfair Museum on the same Historic District Square has wowed both international and regional visitors in her short history.
While enjoying your stay in one of our upscale accommodations in our inventory of exquisitely furnished historic townhouse renovations offered at Abercorn Townhomes, Suites, and Condominiums, make it a point to also take an architectural tour of Savannah’s Historic District as you view other architectural gems from yesterday. Check out the different art galleries hidden away in downtown City Market and the Shops at Ellis Square. Look for hidden art treasures in their outside kiosks as you stroll down cobblestone paved River Street. Whatever trips your artistic trigger, your long weekend getaway to Savannah’s Arts District is sure to scratch that itch.
