Founded in 1886, the South’s oldest art museum has three buildings, each containing works that correspond to the era in which it was built. Telfair Academy is home to 19th- and 20th-century American and European art; the Owens-Thomas House has a collection of late 18th- to early 19th-century decorative arts and an exhibit featuring an intact urban slave quarters; and the contemporary Jepson Center has the Glass House and the Sculpture Terrace.
The terrace is a great place to take in the views of Telfair Square and the gold-domed City Hall. Another highlight is Sylvia Shaw Judson’s Bird Girl, a statue made famous for being on the dust jacket of John Berendt’s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
