It’s completely interactive. PULSE invites guests to be a part of the art with interactive exhibitions, artist talks, performances and more.
If you’re GIF-happy there’s no other place you should be. The second annual Savannah International GIF Festival, happening during PULSE, will showcase “the best digital animations set to live music by local performers.”
