The young man selling tickets is not very helpful. Did not tell us that volunteer for a 2 o'clock tour did not show up and tour got canceled. They have a small but nice modern art collection.

Sorry that you had rainy weather during your visit, Savannah is a very sunny town! But we are glad that you were able to spend time in the Jepson Center; we agree that it was a little chilly here last week and are adjusting accordingly.
