Christo's Visit to Charleston

The Gibbes is still abuzz from Christo’s visit to Charleston last month. The world-renowned artist gave an amazing lecture for a sold-out crowd of over 400 people at Memminger Auditorium on April 13. The evening before the lecture, event sponsors gathered at the home of Esther and James Ferguson for a cocktail party in celebration of Christo’s visit. The Gibbes is deeply appreciative of all of our sponsors, particularly Esther and James Ferguson, our lead sponsors who made this event possible.
