“home to the Telfair’s Kirk Varnedoe Collection”
The Jepson Center is home to the Telfair’s Kirk Varnedoe Collection, a cornerstone of the museum’s contemporary holdings. Assembled in honor of the late Savannah native, scholar, and MoMA curator Kirk Varnedoe, the collection features works on paper by some of the most pivotal artists of the past fifty years, including Jasper Johns, Chuck Close, Roy Lichtenstein, Jeff Koons, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, and Richard Avedon. The museum’s diverse contemporary collection also features important works by William Christenberry, Helen Levitt, Sam Gilliam, James Brooks, and many notable Georgia artists.
I loved it! A lot of history in the art there. This was a midway point for me an my girlfriend. It was definitely worth it. Cafe was great and just loved the atmosphere.
When I think art, I don't think Savannah, GA. But when I visited, the comtemporary art was fantastic and engaging. Even the building itself is art. The photograph shown is not a lie--those beautiful shadows are there for you to see nearly all the time.
Really interesting. This is also where they have moved the Bird Girl statue.
