Former Franklin Art Works director to curate Savannah art museum

Posted by: Mary Abbe under Art, Galleries, Museums Updated: December 18, 2013 - 5:24 PM

Tim Peterson, who brought a lot of high quality new art to the Twin Cities during his years as director of Franklin Art Works, has been named chief curator for the Savannah College of Art and Design Museum of Art. The 35-year-old college located in history-rich downtown Savannah, GA  opened its new museum two years ago. Peterson will have 20,000 sq ft of exhibition space to curate and will also oversee satellite galleries in Atlanta, Hong Kong and Lacoste, France, he said in an email note. 

Franklin Art Works closed earlier this spring after a 14 year run and was hoping to relocate to a more high-trafficed area than its former site on Franklin Av. Since Peterson was Franklin's only employee, the organization's future is now in question.
