The new Welcome Gallery at the Gibbes

The new Welcome Gallery at the Gibbes

If you haven’t visited the Gibbes lately, we have big changes in store for you! We recently opened the Welcome Gallery in the front of the museum. This new gallery offers a behind-the-scenes peek of the Gibbes while sharing the museum’s history, beautiful architecture, expansive collection, and the artmaking process. To tell the Gibbes story, the Welcome Gallery includes historic photographs, rarely displayed objects from the museum archives, and even architectural details from the Gibbes dome. But that’s not all, this multi-media gallery also includes video, a digital slide show, and computer stations where you can learn more about the Gibbes collection. The Welcome Gallery was created with our members and visitors in mind, so please stop by and make yourself at home!

And while you are here, check out the new fall merchandise in the museum store. With bags, totes, jewelry, scarves, and home décor items, we have something for everyone.

We think you’ll like our new look and hope to see you at the Gibbes soon!
