A message from SCAD president and founder Paula Wallace
So many of Savannah’s trailblazers are female, yet so few are recorded in the city’s history or in its art. Ten years ago, when I first walked into the university’s historic Arnold Hall theater, I immediately noticed a 1930s mural — in tribute to notable Savannahians — that frames the stage. I had just one question: where are the women?
Savannah Women of Vision begins to answer this question by presenting 10 meritorious women who have influenced Savannah during its storied history. Whether Savannahians by birth or by choice, they have shaped this city and beyond with their immense intellect, initiative and compassion. It is my great hope that their example will galvanize a host of new artists, educators, entrepreneurs, diplomats and philanthropists.
To Savannah’s visionary women — and those to come,
SCAD president and founder
