Savannah's April Art Scene
The first week of April in Savannah has exploded onto the events calendar with a Cultural Collage of free Activities, Events and Festivals designed to appeal to the art lover in all of us. Kicking things off for the week was the Award-Winning Art March which took place in the colorful Starland District hosted by Art Rise Savannah; featuring an open air Indie Arts Market along with a map of Gallery Exhibition Openings and Events. Visitors looking for an artistic outlet within the Historic District made their way down to the Savannah Waterfront and participated in the Weekend River Street Art Festival, complete with Fine Art Show, Live Music, First Friday Fireworks and hands-on entertainment for all ages. Attendees of the River Street Art Celebration also had the opportunity to participate in a new interactive experience Presented by Telfair Museums which was inspired by the current In Living Color: Andy Warhol and Contemporary Printmaking exhibit at the Jepson Center for the Arts which runs through May 17th, 2015.
Visionaries who desired to extend their River Walk even further on Saturday could jump on the Elevator at the Bohemian Hotel to make their way up to Rocks on the Roof for the premier of the First Saturday Art Walk. This Inspirational event is the brainchild of Savannah Artist, Tiffani Taylor, who developed the Monthly Walk in order to help expand the alliance between local artists in the community. Guests at the Walk had the opportunity to take a self-guided tour over a dozen galleries located within 1 mile of the Tiffany Taylor Gallery while stopping along the way to enjoy a gratis wine pouring (or two) at the Sponsoring Hotels including the Bohemian and Andaz Savannah.
Rounding out the Creative Collective for the week will be the Studio 54 Themed Pop Up Art Party hosted by Telfair Museums and South Magazine at the Jepson Center on April 9th. The dynamic duo will be teaming up to celebrate the New Hot Pink Installation with acclaimed Guest Artist, Anne Ferrer at 6pm followed by an after party with food, drinks, music and more!
