Gibbes Museum in the News: July 5 – 15

Unraveled by Sonya Clark

“One South Contemporary” included The Things We Carry exhibition at the Gibbes in a recent piece in which the author reflects on her personal experience at the Museum. She praises the Gibbes for approaching the dichotomy “that is the South” so honestly and directly.

The Gibbes and three of its current exhibits are featured in ART MAG’s summer issue. Oh, and check out our quarterly Gibbes ad too!

Traditional Fine Art Organization (TFAO) published an article on the Beyond Catfish Row exhibition in their online Resource Library. Kudos again to our in-house Porgy expert, curator Pam Wall.
