downtown brunswick’s art scene

Downtown Brunswick is not just home to the history of the area but to a vibrant arts and entertainment scene.  Theatre, film, music, visual arts and a variety of events offer something for everyone throughout the year.  Every month, First Friday draws hundreds downtown for art exhibit openings, live music and street performers.  Take in a live performance at the Historic Ritz Theatre or Brunswick Actors Theatre; stroll through specialty shops and galleries or create your own painting or pottery piece; hear great local musicians play; and keep an eye out for an Elvis or two when the Georgia Elvis Festival comes to town.  Cultural arts and unique entertainment is a hallmark of the historic downtown.  

Art

The Golden Isles are also home to a large number of resident artists. Their works, along with works of regional, national and international artists, can be viewed and purchased at area art galleries, specialty shops and the many scheduled art shows.

The gentleman in this photo is none other than N. H. Ballard. Professor Ballard served as Glynn county superintendent of schools from 1901 to 1919. Although the Ballard school is now closed the building remains and can be seen on Old Jesup Road. #throwbackthursday #discoverbrunswick #goldenisles
