The Gibbes Museum may be closed for renovations, but that hasn't stopped them from planning one of Charleston's favorite parties. On May 7 from 7:30-10pm, the street in front of 135 Meeting Street will be transformed into a turn-of-the-century Parisian fête!
Gibbes on the Street: La Belle Époque, The Gibbes' sixth-annual Street Party will look back to La Belle Époque, —a “golden age” characterized by optimism and prosperity, where the arts flourished and many masterpieces of literature, music, theater, and visual art gained recognition on a grand scale. The Gibbes Beaux-Arts building, completed during this period, will serve as the backdrop for this celebration under the stars.
Charleston's top chefs will serve delicacies inspired by Escoffier and the French culinary tradition.
