The leadership of the Telfair Museum wanted to broaden their audience with a new interactive art gallery that would challenge visitors to explore big ideas about art and architecture. Hands On! with C.W. Shaw accepted the challenge of making a potentially daunting topic accessible to visitors of all ages and abilities. This one-of-a-kind exhibition incorporates an intriguing, provocative space that allows visitors to create connections that spark a deeper relationship with art.

Our team created an approachable and engaging environment that encourages interaction and discussion about a topic to which there is no right answer. At ArtZeum, visitors are challenged to look closer, question their assumptions and form their own ideas about art. The result? Savannah’s only interactive museum space, celebrated for challenging visitors to understand that, no matter who you are, you can have a meaningful relationship with art!

"Hands On! was amazing to work with! Our team had a vision, but Hands On! knew how to turn our big ideas into great experiences. We all grew in the process of working together."
