T+L Reports: Jepson Center for the Arts

Since its establishment in 1886, the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah has displayed its collection of paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, and photography in a pair of genteel 19th-century Regency-style mansions. On March 10, the museum unveils its first expansion, the Jepson Center for the Arts (121 Barnard St.; 912/790-8800; www.telfair.org)—two wings covered in white limestone and linked by glass bridges. The Moshe Safdie–designed center will hold an inaugural exhibition of recent paintings by Robert Rauschenberg. The Jepson will also showcase the Kirk Varnedoe Collection: works given to the museum by artists (such as Jasper Johns and Richard Serra) championed by Varnedoe, the late Savannah native and former director of painting and sculpture at MOMA.
