Exhibit Dates: July 17, 2021 – January 9, 2022 | Location: The Morris Museum | Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 10am-5pm/Sun 12-5pm/CLOSED Mon & Major Holidays

Over the years, Savannah, Georgia, has enjoyed a reputation as an unusually vibrant center for the visual arts, a reputation that has resulted from a large and active community of artists. Christopher P. H. Murphy, his wife Lucile Desbouillons Murphy, and two of their seven children, Christopher A. D. Murphy and his sister Margaret, were central figures in the cultural life of Savannah as artists, teachers, and leaders of the Savannah Art Club and the Association of Georgia Artists. 

The work on display was drawn from the Morris’s collection of more than 175 works of art by the Murphy family artists.
