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. The building was constructed at the site of the former Dunbar High School library with the goal of being an updated cultural and information resource space for the community.
