SCAD’s deFINE ART festival Savannah 2021

Saturday, February 20th, 2021

Define Art SCAD Museum of Art Savannah 2021

SCAD’s deFINEART festival 2021  Feb. 23-25.

You’re invited to SCAD’s deFINEART festival featuring virtual programming tied to the exhibitions that are now on view at SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah.

Of the exhibitions on view, families may particularly enjoy The Haas Brothers ‘Beast in Show’ (pictured).

In Beast in Show, the twin brothers Nikolai and Simon Haas Brothers present recent “beast” sculptures ranging in scale from the hand-held to the larger-than-life. These fantastical creatures are an ongoing body of work. Composed of natural fur from a variety of animals paired with cast bronze or carved wood, the beasts typically only possess legs and horns, leaving viewers to infer personality from gesture and form rather than facial features. With titles like Snail Earnhardt Jr. and Shaggy Gyllenhaal, the beasts are charming, odd, whimsical, and humorous, reflective of the artists’ spirited approach to art making.

Learn more here. 

MUSEUM ADMISSION
The exhibition is free for museum members and SCAD students, faculty, and staff with a valid SCAD Card. Open to the public with the cost of museum admission.
