The Porcelain and Decorative Arts Museum at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia is now open. The newest building at the garden holds the personal porcelain and decorative arts from Deen Day Sanders. The space is designed to draw environmental and conservation connections to the collections in the museum.
There are eight different gallery spaces blending subjects of conservation, botanicals, art, beauty and curiosity represented in the porcelain pieces. Adjacent to the building is the Discovery and Inspiration Garden, where visitors can connect to the living botanical collection represented on so many of the porcelain pieces in the museum. Please join staff and docents in the Porcelain and Decorative Arts Museum to develop your own ideas on art and nature and become inspired to see the natural environment through the lens of the many porcelain arts on display.
The Porcelain and Decorative Arts Museum is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Sunday from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Entry to the museum is free, and no reservations are required. Registration for museum tours is available at the information desk in the Visitor Center.
