Everyone at the Gibbes Museum is excited in anticipation of the Art of Design Luncheon & Lecture that will be held in the tented museum courtyard on March 15 at 12:30pm. The Women’s Council presents this annual fundraiser in support of the museum’s exhibition and educational programming. This year’s featured speaker is the internationally known fashion critic for The New York Times, Cathy Horyn. Ms. Horyn is known for her say-it-like-it-is writing style in the On the Runway style blog and in feature fashion articles for The New York Times. In 2002, Cathy received the Eugenia Sheppard Award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and Scene Magazine recently referred to her as “The Most Fearless and Feared Woman in Fashion.” Her presentation—fresh from the runways of New York City, Paris, and Milan—promises to be stimulating and entertaining.

An added attraction at this year’s event will be a silent auction that includes paintings and jewelry donated by local artists, as well as fashions from Charleston retailers, and a wonderful Italian leather desk ensemble. The auction begins at 11am and will conclude at noon. We invite you to take a moment to view the items that will be available for bidding by clicking on the images below for details and bidding information in advance of the event.

Luncheon tickets are $125 each, and are available by calling Amanda Breen at 843.722.2706 Ext. 21 or by visiting gibbesmuseum.org/events. I hope to see you there!
