Steeped in art and history, Bonaventure Cemetery is one of Savannah, Georgia’s most scenic locales. First established as a plantation in the 1760s, Bonaventure was visited by artists as early as the 1830s. On view through September at the @telfairmuseums
, “Bonaventure: A Historic Cemetery in Art” features paintings, prints, photographs, and sculpture inspired by or connected to the cemetery—including two TJC works, a landscape by Savannah native Hattie Saussy and this modernist interpretation of the site by Gina Knee.
