Historic 1905 art gallery in Charleston SC gets a $13.5 million restoration

From its beginning, the Gibbes Art Gallery of Charleston, South Carolina had a two-fold mission: to exhibit paintings and to teach art.

Over 110 years and a $13.5 million renovation later, the Gibbes Museum of Art is returning to that mission.

James Shoolbred Gibbes, who bequeathed the first $100,000 for a building to be so used, would be well pleased.

Indeed, he would likely be awed.

The renovation of the 1905 Beaux Arts-style building was meticulously conceived and masterfully carried out.
