The Gibbes Museum of Fine Art seeks to engage members of the community, inviting all to stake a personal claim in Charleston’s signature museum by voting for favorite works of art on the People’s Choice website. People’s Choice: A Community Curated Exhibition will be on display from May 3 – September 15, 2013.
In an effort to gather a variety of voices and diverse opinions, the Gibbes Museum has invited notable people from Charleston and beyond including Mayor Joseph P. Riley, renowned chef Nathalie Dupree, and event designer extraordinaire, Tara Guérard, to share thoughts, opinions and feelings about art. They asked questions such as: Why is art important in your life? What is your first memory of art? and, why are museums important to you? The answers have been inspiring and refreshing.
