Gibbes Museum of Art

 

A stroll down “Museum Mile” should include a visit to the Gibbes Museum of Art. The art museum houses an extensive collection of paintings, sculpture and decorative arts.

The art museum houses an extensive collection of paintings, sculpture and decorative arts, from eras including the colorful Charleston Renaissance. Take a look at the faces that played major roles in Charleston’s history as you stroll through rooms of portraits and miniatures, many commissioned from classically-trained European artists who brought their skills across the Atlantic to serve Colonial Charleston’s elite. Travel forward to modern times with the Gibbes’ collection of contemporary works by artists native to the area whose works express the rich and culturally diverse story of Lowcountry heritage.
