COME EXPLORE THE ARTZEUM! (located inside the Jepson Center)


The Jepson Center houses the ArtZeum (art-zee-um), an interactive children’s museum space. It’s designed with young people in mind, but challenges young and old alike to rethink their ideas about art. The ArtZeum features twenty-four activities exploring some big ideas about art;  What is art?  Why do we make art?  How do we look at art?  How do we value art?

Inside you will find reproductions of art works from the Telfair collection, and a wall where you can act as curator and choose which art to display. The Glass House, created by Therman Statom just for ArtZeum, is designed so you can wander through it and discover connections to Savannah and Telfair Museums. There is a glass wall made just for expressing your creative side. Into sculpture? Check out the magnet wall, where you can assemble a masterpiece from everyday household items. Got an opinion? Tell us which work of art is a must have if you are moving to the moon. Interested in 3-D? Use our special magnetic tiles to transform 2-D shapes to 3-D forms.  Learn about the art of architecture.  Try on a Capital Cap and think about what it would feel like to hold up a building. Create your own buildings with architectural blocks.  Need a break...you can relax with an art book in one of our big comfy chairs designed by Phillipe Starck, made just right for a snuggle and a read.

INTERACT WITH TECHNOLOGY AT THE TELFAIR!

Complementing the ArtZeum, the Telfair’s Technology and Art Gallery is a great place for visitors of all ages to explore interactive and new media art. This long-term rotating exhibit introduces viewers to new media works that use various types of video and computer processing.
