“I have traveled all over the globe and have visited every major city in the U.S. at least once. And as an artist, I have painted the views and landscapes in most of them. Savannah remains one of my favorites because it is a city built and maintained with great care.”
—Tony Bennett, from his foreword
More than 130 original watercolors by students and faculty members of the Savannah College of Art and Design capture the unforgettable atmosphere of Savannah, Georgia, a city whose beauty, history, and mystery have attracted visitors from around the world. These twenty-one artists portray landmarks ranging from Forsyth Park and the Telfair Museum in Savannah’s elegant historic district to the Isle of Hope and the ruins of the Wormsloe estate outside the city.
