Archive for December, 2011
In addition to all of the 2011 recaps, I also wanted to highlight the dynamic innovations of the year.
The opening of the SCAD Museum of Art was groundbreaking and will offer Savannah’s students and residents the best in international contemporary art.
And the museum’s new fashion and design gallery is filled with endless style.
Two Savannah-based artists Matt Hebermehl and Dr Z along with an organization called, SeeSAW have been working passionately to bring murals and public art to Savannah throughout this past year. 2012 will bring vibrant, new images to public spaces in the city and this will be great for generations to come.
An eco-friendly children’s clothing line called Mini Mamie was launched by Savannah’s very own Emily Bergeron. It will do very well because it is hip, stylish and in tune with the “green movement” that is spreading around the country.
The first Rock and Roll Marathon brought to cheer, energy and determination to Savannah, and gathered thousands of people from all around the world.
Believe or not (and whether you like them or not) Savannah was the first city in the world to see the re-birth of the Muppets at the Savannah Film Festival.
And finally, Savannah’s first Fashion’s Night Out was a huge success, putting the city on the global style map and giving all residents a big stage upon which to strut their stuff.
Rock on Savannah! And here’s to a fantastic 2012!
