Youthful Adventures: Growing Up in Photography exhibit on view @ Telfair Museums Jepson Center, Savannah

Monday, November 9th, 2020

Savannah Telfair Museums Jepson Center Photography exhibit 2020

Youthful Adventures: Growing Up in Photography @ Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center, Savannah

The Youthful Adventures: Growing Up in Photography exhibit currently on display at Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center in Savannah seeks to celebrate and complicate views of childhood as a universal stage in life, but one that varies broadly in experience.

The images show a range in age from the emotional minefield and playful discovery of early childhood to the often probing and sometimes awkward search for identity of young adulthood. The exhibition speaks to the diversity of experiences of growing up as children seek to formulate their identities in the multiplicity of societal influences.

You’re invited to an Outdoor Family Movie Night fundraiser for Family Promise of the Coastal Empire, 7PM Sun. Nov. 15 2020 @ Benedictine Military School in Savannah.

Attendees can bring chairs, blankets, and snacks or picnics to enjoy while watching an outdoor screening of the “The Addams Family” on a large inflatable movie screen.

Stage Front Production Services donated their services and equipment for the evening, providing the audio-visual needs for the event, which will guarantee a high-quality show for all in attendance. Benedictine Military School offered the use of its property.

Proceeds from the Outdoor Family Movie Night will support Family Promise’s mission of assisting homeless families with children in Chatham, Bryan and Effingham counties.
