The Gibbes Museum of Art has received a grant award in the amount of $100,000 from the prestigious Henry Luce Foundation for the reinstallation and reinterpretation of the permanent collection as part of the Gibbes renovation. The renovation will begin in early fall of 2014, and is designed to showcase the museum's distinguished collection and afford a complete picture of American visual culture in the South from the early colonial era to the present. The Luce Foundation is committed to supporting the continued vitality of American art scholarship and programs, and this grant strengthens the Gibbes’ commitment to generating scholarship and exhibitions that promote a broad understanding of the dynamic role that the art of the South plays in the larger context of American and world art history.
“We are thrilled to receive this grant from the Henry Luce Foundation for the reinstallation of our collection. The highly regarded Henry Luce American Art program has supported significant projects including the reinstallation of the permanent collection at a number of museums, including the Andy Warhol Museum in 2014 and the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in 2013. We are honored to be included in this selection of esteemed institutions,” says Gibbes Museum of Art Executive Director, Angela Mack.
The workshop, "Bringing Light Into Your Paintings," includes 2 days of painting en plein air and one day painting from reference photos. This workshop is $695 and includes lunch daily and a cocktail party on Wednesday evening.

We’re lucky. Quick lunch in Charleston doesn’t have to mean eating exactly the same thing millions of Americans are eating at the same time from the same menu where everything begins with “mc”. We have some fast lunch choices that are actually healthy, where the proprietor lives down the street and whose kids go to school with ours. And variety? Forget about it!
Verde at 347 King has generous servings of fresh salad ingredients, tossed, chopped or wrapped around leafy greens, nuts and cheeses. You can add a little basil, mint or cilantro with house made dressings and tasty vinaigrettes. Grab a soda and you’re in lunch heaven.
My favorite barbecue in town is Nicks, 288 King Street. I love a pulled chicken sandwich on a bun made mushy by juices and their great barbecue sauce, a nice side of beans, crisp fries and tangy slaw. In my humble opinion as a true fan, theirs is a step up from anybody in town. Order at the counter and they’ll bring it to your table with a cold iced tea or lemonade. As with any self-respecting barbecue, they have really good pie. If you’re lucky, they’ll have coconut cream. Don’t hesitate or it will be gone.
