Telfair presents a lecture by Erin Dunn and Dr. Peggy Blood exploring the art of Phillip J. Hampton. The program will also touch on Hampton’s impact on both Telfair and Savannah State University as well as personal remembrance. For 17 years, between 1952 and 1969, Hampton served as an influential visual arts professor and eventual department head at Savannah State College, today known as Savannah State University. He was instrumental in building and expanding a developing arts program and planned arts festivals, taught art appreciation workshops, and organized exhibitions including the first exhibition of African American art at the Telfair.
