lobby art

Hotel? Art gallery? Why not both? The DeSoto partners with the acclaimed Savannah College of Art & Design to showcase the work of SCAD graduates, emerging artists and fine art photographers. The hotel’s lobby is a perfect canvas for rotating exhibits, as well as permanent installations of art and hanging sculpture.

Highlights in our permanent collection include a trio of thought-provoking paintings by Tom Francis, a SCAD painting professor whose works can be found in galleries and museums around the world; a playful paper pulp, plaster and papier-mâché sculpture by SCAD graduate Lauren Clay; and contemporary fine art photography by fellow graduate Justin Ward. In addition, we underwrite an annual Sotherly merit scholarship for a Savannah College of Art & Design student. 

Due to COVID-19, some of our amenities and services may be unavailable or have limited hours of operation during your stay. All up-to-date information will be available at the front desk during check-in.
