Through our complicated history, through light and shadow, we have persevered – humanity intact. Art is the reason.
We believe art is the difference between merely existing and being truly alive.
When we open ourselves to art, we open ourselves to the world – to beauty, craft, to different cultures, to pain and pleasure, expression and emotion.
In the presence of art, we have the opportunity to see inside someone’s heart, mind, and soul and feel what they felt.
When the Gibbes Museum opened in 1905, the nation celebrated what Charleston has always understood: the power of art – to inspire our imagination, heal our hurt, and nourish our souls.
Programs & Events | Classes & Workshops
The Gibbes offers a variety of classes and workshops for all ages and levels.
Classes are led by professionals in the field who use the Museum’s exhibitions and collection as a catalyst for exploring and creating works of art.
