The latest Art in City Hall exhibition features works exploring the iconic seat of Savannah City Government itself.
Savannah College of Art and Design students enrolled in the School of Building Arts completed the pieces as part of a 10- week project under Professor LaRaine Papa Montgomery analyzing good design and planning in the City of Savannah.
Students used Savannah City Hall as a subject to explore the qualities that make a space memorable and rich with meaning. They explored the formal characteristics of the century-old building, as well as its relationship to the surrounding squares, ward, city, and ultimately, to its citizens and visitors.
The pieces were installed in City Hall’s first floor Rotunda last week. The public is invited to view the exhibit during regular business hours.
Art in City Hall is a rotating exhibit that showcases contemporary artwork by professional and emerging artists in Savannah.
The exhibit, launched last summer, rotates every six months and is thematic in nature. Piece selections are made by the City’s Department of Cultural Affairs, whose goal is to highlight the diversity of the entire art community.
