Savannah Parent & Me Activities: Art Start @ Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center

telfair museums jepson center toddlers art start mommy me

Start your day with art! Once a month, Telfair Museums’ youngest patrons are invited to the Savannah museum for story time, a special tour, and an art activity. Strollers, crying babies, toddlers, and older siblings are all welcome @ this Art Start Stroller & Toddler museum tour.

May’s featured exhibition is Savannah artist Katherine Sandoz’s site specific installation “katniss.”  .

This commissioned work is a large-scale suspended sculpture that forms a constellation of abstracted botanical shapes inspired by the aquatic Sagittaria plant genus. The installation is comprised of acrylic elements and transforms itself as you shift your location and perspective in the Jepson Center, aided by the ever-changing light conditions throughout the atrium. Dynamic and lively, the sculpture evolves in the manner of the native vegetation that inspired its arrangement.

Come play and learn.
