Tour the Lucas Theatre!

The Beginnings

Arthur Lucas and architect C.K. Howell opened the Lucas Theatre in December 1921. The theater’s design was a culmination of more than two years of collaboration between Lucas and Howell, and combined Lucas’ favorite architectural details from the Greek revival, Adams-inspired, Art Deco and Neoclassical periods. Lucas owned more than 40 theaters in the South – six of them in Savannah – but the Lucas was the only one to bear his name. From the outset, he intended the Lucas to be a “preminent amusement palace.” He was also very community-oriented. He wrote numerous essays about art and theatre’s place in people’s lives. He wrote letters of welcome to new residents and newborn children in Savannah.

The Lucas Theatre reopened in December 2000 with a screening of “Gone with the Wind,” and in the following months hosted Broadway shows and famous musicians. Although show attendance was high, the operation of the building proved too expensive to sustain on its own. The Savannah College of Art and Design recognized the theater as an important cultural asset in the community, and formed a relationship with The Lucas Theatre for the Arts. The theater’s future is now assured by the college’s support, which allows for a wide range of community uses in addition to top-notch local and international entertainment such as opera, orchestras, country stars, traveling repertory companies and film series.

The Bonaventure Historical Society Conducts Tours of Bonaventure Cemetery

Though not Savannah’s oldest cemetery, Bonaventure is certainly its most famous and hauntingly beautiful. Quintessentially Southern Gothic, it has captured the imaginations of writers, poets, naturalists, photographers and filmmakers for more than 150 years. Part natural cathedral, part sculptural garden, Bonaventure transcends time.
Military generals, poet Conrad Aiken, Academy Award-winning lyricist Johnny Mercer and Georgia’s first governor Edward Telfair are among those buried at Bonaventure. The approximately 100-acre cemetery is also historically significant as a reflection of changing views on death and dying in the Victorian era. As death became more romanticized and ritualized during this period, cemeteries became lush, beautiful “cities of the dead.”

The history of Bonaventure begins with the saga of two early and prominent colonial families, the Mullrynes and the Tattnalls. In 1771 John Mullryne, and his son-in-law, Josiah Tattnall, owned approximately 9,920 acres of Georgia land, including 600 acres just three miles from Savannah on St. Augustine Creek. This site became the family plantation, named Bonaventure, French for “good fortune.”
Mullryne, who also built the third Tybee Lighthouse in 1773, established a small family plot on the grounds, which eventually formed the nucleus of the present-day Bonaventure Cemetery. The first identified adult to be buried here was Harriet Fenwick Tattnall, interred in 1802.
In 1846, Josiah Tattnall III sold the 600-acre plantation to Peter Wiltberger, a prominent Savannah hotelier who agreed to maintain the Tattnall family plot, even though it was not included in the $5,000 sale. In 1847 Wiltberger incorporated 70 acres in the northeast corner as the Evergreen Cemetery of Bonaventure, a public burial ground. Wiltberger and his wife, Susan Green Wiltberger, were among the first Evergreen burials, interred in 1853 and 1849, respectively.
William H. Wiltberger, Peter’s only surviving son, subsequently inherited the property and incorporated the Evergreen Cemetery Company in 1869. This entity was responsible for hiring a superintendent, erecting the main gate and reducing the price of lots from 12.5 cents to 6.5 cents per square foot.
Evergreen Cemetery was purchased by the City of Savannah in 1907 and became Bonaventure Cemetery. In 1982, it was placed under the supervision of the city’s Department of Cemeteries. In 2001, thanks in part to the efforts of BHS volunteers, the Cemetery was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Today the cemetery is still active, containing nearly 100 acres.

Tour the Lucas Theatre!

The Beginnings

Arthur Lucas and architect C.K. Howell opened the Lucas Theatre in December 1921. The theater’s design was a culmination of more than two years of collaboration between Lucas and Howell, and combined Lucas’ favorite architectural details from the Greek revival, Adams-inspired, Art Deco and Neoclassical periods. Lucas owned more than 40 theaters in the South – six of them in Savannah – but the Lucas was the only one to bear his name. From the outset, he intended the Lucas to be a “preminent amusement palace.” He was also very community-oriented. He wrote numerous essays about art and theatre’s place in people’s lives. He wrote letters of welcome to new residents and newborn children in Savannah.

Today

The Lucas Theatre reopened in December 2000 with a screening of “Gone with the Wind,” and in the following months hosted Broadway shows and famous musicians. Although show attendance was high, the operation of the building proved too expensive to sustain on its own. The Savannah College of Art and Design recognized the theater as an important cultural asset in the community, and formed a relationship with The Lucas Theatre for the Arts. The theater’s future is now assured by the college’s support, which allows for a wide range of community uses in addition to top-notch local and international entertainment such as opera, orchestras, country stars, traveling repertory companies and film series.

Toddler 3rd Thursday at Jepson Center

Telfair Museums, the oldest public art museum in the Southeast, has been an integral part of Savannah’s social landscape for over a century.

Since opening its doors to the public in 1880s, the museum has grown from a renovated family mansion into a distinguished cultural institution boasting three architecturally-significant buildings; a permanent collection of approximately 4,000 works of art from America and Europe, dating primarily from the 18th-21st centuries; and a history of dynamic educational programming, community outreach, and exciting exhibitions. Located in Savannah’s vibrant historic district, the museum consists of the Telfair Academy and the Owens-Thomas House two circa 1820 National Historic Landmark buildings and the contemporary Jepson Center.

Jepson Center
Devoted to the art of today, the contemporary Jepson Center links Telfair’s future with its past, unifying the museum’s three distinct sites. The building, designed by Moshe Safdie and opened to the public in 2006, features over 7,500 square feet of gallery space for major traveling exhibitions of contemporary art and installations of works from the permanent collection. Educational programming takes place in the 220-seat auditorium, community gallery, education studios, and ArtZeum-a unique, 3,500-square foot interactive gallery for children and families.
The Jepson Center is home to the Telfair’s Kirk Varnedoe Collection, a cornerstone of the museum’s contemporary holdings. Assembled in honor of the late Savannah native, scholar, and MoMA curator Kirk Varnedoe, the collection features works on paper by some of the most pivotal artists of the past fifty years, including Jasper Johns, Chuck Close, Roy Lichtenstein, Jeff Koons, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, and Richard Avedon. The museum’s diverse contemporary collection also features important works by William Christenberry, Helen Levitt, Sam Gilliam, James Brooks, and many notable Georgia artists.
