  • We live in Sav, so we go to the SCAD Museum a few times a year. The art here is very much on the leading edge, so it is always interesting to see what the students and artists on display have created....  more »

  • If you like MODERN art, you will enjoy this thoughtfully curated small museum. We went at 3:30 on a Friday and got discounted admission! Unless you are someone who enjoys staring at everything for an hour, honestly, an hour is all you need. All the docents know a lot of about the art and can give you insight to the pieces you are looking at. I really enjoyed knowing some of the back story and inspiration behind the works. I think it's a worthy place to go.
  • I brought my twin boys (age 9) to the opening day of this museum. We have been anticipating this for quite sometime now, marking the progress of the renovation of old, historic structures with modern ones this past year. What an incredible place! The space is outstanding for displaying artwork, the grounds are beautifully designed with sensitivity to century old remnants. Parking was not a problem, and there is also the visitor public parking lot just next door if a street space is not available. The exhibits were fantastic and easy to view and admire. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful and really seemed to enjoy their job. We spent two hours, even revisiting several of the exhibits for a second time. You do not want to miss this, even if you are not a typical visitor of art museums.
