|Facility:||Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art|
|Description:||Ware's Folly became home to the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art in 1937 through the generosity of Mrs. Olivia A. Herbert. A wealthy New Yorker who often wintered in Augusta, Mrs. Herbert purchased and renovated the mansion to provide a permanent home for the Augusta Art Club as well as a living memorial to her daughter, Gertrude Herbert Dunn, who had recently died.
Today major exhibitions of local and regional artists hang in the Institute's Main Gallery, while displays of art by area school children fills the first- and third-floor hallways. Exhibits typically rotate every six to eight weeks, offering visitors something new to see almost every time they stop by.
Guided tours available with two weeks advance notice.
