The Gibbes was featured in a blog post by Gal Meets Glam (UMV: 408,728), a prominent lifestyle and fashion blogger who featured her recent trip to the Charleston on her blog and Instagram. The Instagram photo has 15.7K likes!

Patrick Dougherty’s earthy artwork was featured in the spring issue of Garden Design. We were delighted to see the great coverage of our future Visiting Artist. Dougherty paid a visit to the Gibbes last week as he makes plans for his spring installation at the Museum.

The Charleston Mercury featured an article written by Pam Wall announcing finalists of the 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art. The article was accompanied by a Gibbes ad. The winner of the 1858 Prize will be announced on August 15th.

Charleston City Paper featured an exciting piece on the upcoming Guggenheim exhibit that will go on display in October. The Gibbes originally hosted the modern art collection 80 years ago in 1936.

Jetsetter’s blog, a private online travel community, also featured the Guggenheim exhibit in the section, “What’s New in Charleston.”

Charleston City Paper announced the Gibbes Distinguished Lecture Series featuring Jeff Koons in November.
