In honor of its milestone anniversary, the museum welcomes renowned international artists for a diverse program of exhibitions.

The Savannah College of Art and Design is proud to announce the ten-year anniversary of the SCAD Museum of Art. For the past decade, the award-winning museum has brought together more than 200 international established and emerging artists to exhibit, perform, and converse. As a center for cultural dialogue, the museum continues to enrich the high caliber of education and cultural life for students, alumni, the Savannah community, and beyond. Throughout the 2021–22 academic year, SCAD will celebrate this legacy with dynamic new programming and artist engagements, while also highlighting monumental past exhibitions and performances.

For the fall 2021 exhibition season, the SCAD Museum of Art will showcase work by a diverse roster of artists from Colombia, France, Japan, Mexico, Spain, and the US, whose practices reflect the most relevant conversations within contemporary art discourse. More than ten of SCAD’s top-ranked degree programs are represented in the fall exhibitions including architecture, fashion, film and television, graphic design, illustration, interactive design and game development, jewelry, painting, photography, sculpture, and user experience (UX) design.

“The SCAD Museum of Art celebrates a momentous milestone—ten years—with a fall lineup of luminaries from around the globe," says SCAD president and founder Paula Wallace. "Hein Koh’s anthropomorphic artistry stirs the senses, Izumi Kato’s curious creatures intrigue and enthrall, and Ira Lombardía’s visual ecology explores and elucidates ephemerality. From living legends like Robert Wilson to dauntless documentarians like SCAD alum Arturo Soto, the world’s finest teaching museum’s fall exhibitions enlighten, enliven, and enchant.”

Featured fall solo exhibitions at the university’s award-winning SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah include Mehryl Levisse: White Wig, Arturo Soto: Urban Visions, Hein Koh: Hope & Sorrow, Robert Wilson: A Boy From Texas, Izumi Kato: Stand by You, Ira Lombardía: Void, Christian Siriano: People are People, Nohemí Pérez: The Forest's Bedding (El Lecho del Bosque), and Patrick Dougherty: Stickwork.

The SCAD Museum of Art will also host two group exhibitions during the fall 2021 season including Elizabeth Catlett: Points of Contact and Ring Redux: The Susan Grant Lewin Collection.
