About the Gibbes Museum of art
The Gibbes Museum of Art was opened in 1905 through the benefactor James Gibbes. Today the museum is recognized among the oldest arts organizations in the U.S. and home to the foremost connection of American art that incorporates the story of Charleston. Home to the Carolina Art Association, established in 1858, the Gibbes Museum of Art has contributed in both enriching the aesthetic and cultural lives of its visitors, while helping to shape the careers of American artists for over a century.
Today, Charlestonians still believe in the concept that "art is the difference between merely existing and being truly alive".
