This contemporary building is one-of-a-kind among the characteristic 18th- and 19th-century architecture of historic Savannah. The modern art extension of the Telfair Museum of Art, the Jepson was designed by renowned architect Moshe Safdie. Within the marble-and-glass edifice are rotating exhibits, on loan and from the permanent collection, ranging from European masters to contemporary locals. There's also an outdoor sculpture terrace and an interactive, kid-friendly
area on the third level called the ArtZeum.

Part of the Telfair museum's complex, this is a very modern building in an otherwise architecturally historic area. The gallery space is surprisingly not large, given over mostly to temporary exhibits. Its worth will depend on how good these exhibits are, as very little of its permanent holdings are available to view (and what I saw from the permanent holdings wasn't notable).
