Landmark: A Decade of Collecting at the Jepson Center 

When: March 11-Aug. 14 2016
Since the Jepson Center opened its doors to the public 10 years ago, Telfair Museums has added 1,267 works of art to its permanent collection. These works encompass a broad range of time periods, styles, and media, ranging from 19th-century paintings to digital interactive installations. To celebrate the remarkable strides made in collecting during the Jepson Center era, this exhibition highlights 10 of the most significant acquisitions made from 2006 to the present. The selections include silver from the 437-object donation made in 2012 by Dr. Frank A. Rizza; a 19th-century painting of Dutch peasants by Gari Melchers; an iconic Chuck Close self-portrait; and a mixed media assemblage by contemporary artist Whitfield Lovell.
