The future of preservation: Will a new generation take up the cause?

Posted Jun. 16 2014 by Tarana Mayes
Growing up, I regularly thumbed through family photo albums. This ritual of navigating the worn, yellowing pages of images, as if I were traversing history, was eye opening. The photos contextualized my place in that history. So I panic when I think that my daughter may not experience that same sense of belonging because these physical signposts do not exist for her to explore, at least not in a form that she can touch or feel, except to swipe at them on the screens of the devices behind which they’re trapped.

Posted Jun. 2 2014 by Tarana Mayes
A good commencement address is irresistible. Whether graduating or firmly planted in career or school, the distilled life experience and wisdom are too convenient and enlightening to pass up.

Video: Sidewalk Arts 2014 and the winners

Posted Apr. 29 2014 by Tarana Mayes
Sidewalk Arts 2014 saw 1,000 Savannah College of Art and Design students, alumni and prospective students transform the pathways of Forsyth Park into a colorful carpet of inspired chalk art. This timelapse by photographer Andrew Forino (B.F.A., photography, 2014) captures the mellow frenzy of the day: artists drawing against the clock, their audience lured ahead by one brilliant illustration after another.

Looking forward to Sidewalk Arts

Posted Apr. 19 2014 by Taylor Kigar
To get ready for Savannah College of Art and Design's Sidewalk Arts Festival (April 26), we're taking a visit back to some photos from previous years. The festival is a nod to an art form as old as the 16th century, but we're bringing it into the present like never before.
