Gibbes Museum of Art - February 2024

The Gibbes Museum of Art Established in 1858, the Gibbes Museum of Art is recognized among the oldest arts organizations in the United States. Housing one of the foremost collections of American art from the 18th century to the present, the museum’s mission is to enhance lives through art by engaging people of every background and experience with art and artists of enduring quality and by providing opportunities to learn, to discover, to enjoy and to be inspired by the creative process. Renowned artists such as Benjamin West, Gilbert Stuart, Dave Drake, Robert Henri, Jasper Johns, Romare Bearden, Barkley Hendricks, Mary Jackson, Fred Wilson and Kara Walker are featured in the permanent galleries in addition to a yearly rotation of six to eight special temporary exhibitions. 

Beginning January 26 until April 28, 2024, the Gibbes Museum of Art will be the inaugural United States venue for the international exhibition Rory McEwen: A New Perspective on Nature. Presented in association with Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (London) and Oak Spring Garden Foundation, an estate of Rachel Lambert Mellon (Virginia), the exhibition and its related programming will highlight the vibrant and varied career of the renowned Scottish artist, Rory McEwen. 

Art Charleston, a five-day festival of visual art, will be returning for its third year April 24-28, 2024. The Gibbes Museum of Art welcomes visitors and locals alike to celebrate Charleston’s strong and diverse human stories through the arts, with numerous programs and events including artist lectures, gallery walks, professional workshops and more. Designed to innovate, elevate and cultivate Charleston’s thriving arts culture, this annual festival exemplifies “Art is the Reason.” 

As an admirer of PBS NewsHour, NPR and Masterpiece, Angela Mack, President and CEO of the museum says, “as an institution for lifelong learning, the Gibbes is a sponsor to support programming for all ages, as well as to reach arts and culture communities and interest groups for the purpose of sharing what’s happening at a South Carolina museum that has been treasured for its forward-thinking approach for nearly 120 years”
