Augusta Savage Museum & Mentoring Center

The Augusta Savage Museum and Mentoring Center, completed in May 2021, is a multipurpose building, which will serve the community in arts, education, and after-school tutoring. Space inside includes a dance studio, classroom space for music and visual arts, a computer lab, and an interactive museum space showcasing the life and work of sculptor Augusta Savage as well as a rotating display of other artists.
