Today the "Bird Girl" statue may be found in the main hall of the Telfair Academy on a 5th floor balcony and walkway. The location is so remote, in fact, that many visitors pass through without seeing this famous piece at all…

The "Bird Girl" statue was sculpted in 1938 by Sylvia Shaw Judson and was purchased by Savannah's Lucy Boyd Trosdal who placed it atop a family gravesite in Bonaventure Cemetery. It stood there for 50 years before Jack Leigh photographed it for the cover of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." Made so popular by the book and movie, the statue was moved to the Savannah's Telfair Museum of Art to keep from being destroyed.
