Libraries, galleries and the SCAD Museum of Art

SCAD libraries are focal points for inspiration, information, study and research. Collections vary and are targeted to the needs of the SCAD community. At each location, the library contributes to every aspect of academic and intellectual life by providing a broad range of collections and services, including access to digital images, online databases, media, course reserves, archival materials and personalized research instruction.

SCAD galleries and exhibitions in Savannah, Atlanta, Hong Kong and Lacoste showcase the work of students, alumni, faculty and other distinguished and emerging artists.

The SCAD Museum of Art is a premier contemporary art museum established to enrich the education of SCAD students and expand learning opportunities beyond the classroom. Introducing new exhibitions every academic quarter, the museum offers work by a range of highly-acclaimed artists from around the world, inspiring and challenging students across disciplines to push the boundaries of their creative practice. Mounting more than twenty exhibitions each year, the museum has presented renowned artists such as Yinka Shonibare, Sigalit Landau, Kehinde Wiley, Jane Alexander and Alfredo Jaar. Vogue’s André Leon Talley regularly curates couture exhibitions such as “Little Black Dress” alongside ever-changing site-specific installations by artists such as Fred Wilson, Kendall Buster, Odili Donald Odita, Ingrid Calame and Jennifer Rubell. The museum’s permanent collection includes the Walter O. Evans Collection of African American Art, the Modern and Contemporary Art Collection, the 19th- and 20th-Century Photography Collection, the Costume Collection, and the Earle W. Newton Collection of British and American Art.
