Overlooking the Savannah River in historic downtown
Augusta, stands the Morris Museum of Art—the first
museum in the country dedicated to the art and artists
of the American South. Noted for its multifaceted permanent collection, diverse and
continually rotating exhibitions, and extensive outreach and in-house programs, the
Morris Museum is dedicated to the interpretation of Southern art in all its forms and
the preservation of the region’s rich visual culture.
From nineteenth-century portraits to contemporary studio art glass, the Morris Museum boasts a collection of nearly six thousand works—paintings, sculptures, prints, and photographs—that are arranged in ten thematic galleries. In addition, the Morris hosts more than twelve special exhibitions annually, a wide array of virtual events—artist talks, gallery tours, and readings—and offers outreach throughout the community, as well as Create-with-Me To-Go art kits.
