When we think of “art cities” a few places come to mind: New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami, but what if we told you that Fort Lauderdale and Charleston, were also considered an “art city.”
Today, Apartment Guide published its findings on 10 great cities for art lovers based on the ratio of art galleries and dealers, art museums, artist supply stores, cultural art organizations and more in relation to population.
Places like Savannah, Georgia clocked in at #7. It’s home to the oldest art museum in the South, the Telfair Museum of Art, opened in 1886. That’s just one of the Hostess City’s five art museums, including two focusing on African and African-American art, The Beach Institute and the free Savannah African Art Museum. Much of Savannah’s art renaissance is tied to the Savannah College of Art and Design, the largest art institution in America, enrolling 9,000 students in 42 programs. A steal at just $1,027 a month, the average rent in Savannah will give you plenty of extra money to decorate in that Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil theme you always wanted.
So which city made it to the top of the list? The answer may surprise you! Click here to find out.
