SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A brand new exhibit was unveiled Tuesday at the Jepson Center all the way from the world renown Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.

With works dating back to the Renaissance, patrons will have a chance to see world class art right here at home.

"It's just a real thrill to be able to have works of this quality here at the Jepson Center. Works from the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, one of the oldest and most famous museums, it's just a thrill," said Lisa Grove, Director/CEO of The Telfair Museums.

The Uffizi exhibition will be on display at the Jepson Center through Easter.
