SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Savannah College of Art and Design opens its expanded and renovated museum of contemporary art and design on Oct. 29.

The inaugural exhibitions at the new museum include: Bill Viola, The Crossing; Liza Lou, Let the Light In; Kendall Buster, New Growth: Stratum Field; a solo exhibition of recent works by Kehinde Wiley; and selections from the museum's permanent collection.

Galleries in the SCAD Museum of Art act as extensions of the traditional classroom. There are 12 classrooms wide hallways and doorframes allow for easy movement and study of large works of art, and storage facilities located among the classrooms allow access to all of SCAD's collections and temporary works, according to SCAD.

The museum, which was designed by President Paula Wallace and Senior Vice President for College Resources Glenn Wallace, is 82,000 square feet and includes an 86-foot-tall steel and glass lantern.

The facility has a 250-seat theater, a terrace and outdoor projection screen, a conservation studio, a museum café and an event atrium.

The museum features two new galleries: the Walter O. Evans Center for African American Studies and the André Leon Talley Gallery.

The museum's entry hall has an interactive orientation center with a 10-foot-long touch pad that provides visitors on-demand information and images of the facility, exhibitions, artists and museum events.
