Letter from the Executive Director T H I S Y E A R H A S B E E N L I K E N O OT H E R , A N D W E H O P E T H AT T O G E T H E R W E W I L L S U C C E S S F U L LY M A N E U V E R T H E S E C H A L L E N G I N G T I M E S . When the Museum closed its doors on March 18th due to COVID-19, we were poised to have one of the most successful seasons since our grand renovation reopening in 2016. Just a few months prior, the Museum received the coveted South Carolina Governor’s Award for the Arts, the state’s highest arts honor for outstanding achievement and contributions to the arts in South Carolina. We had also received the prestigious Beacon award from the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce for bringing back to life “a structure that elevates aesthetics and improves quality of life for the region.” Transformational exhibitions like Black Refractions: Highlights from the Studio Museum in Harlem, Rauschenberg in Charleston, and Influence and Inspiration: The Art of Jill Hooper, Ben Long and Frank Mason, as well as A Return to the Grand Tour: Micromosaic Jewels from the Collection of Elizabeth Locke, Central to Their Lives: Southern Women Artists in the Johnson Collection, and British Sporting Art from the Penkhus Collection captured the imagination of our members and visitors, while demonstrating our versatility and desire to reach all sectors of our community. The internationally acclaimed, groundbreaking installation artist Fred Wilson had joined the ranks of our Gibbes Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, and we were on the cusp of installing his remarkable and thought-provoking exhibition in partnership with Spoleto Festival USA, when the world changed course and everything stopped. In this report you will see a conglomeration of two worlds, pre-COVID and post-COVID. The immediate loss of 42% of budgeted income led to a 20% reduction in staff, 10–20% reductions in salaries and benefits for all remaining staff, and a 50% reduction in exhibitions and education program expenditures through 2021. However, even in such dire circumstances, I am proud to report that through emergency grants, a successful Board of Directors match with 100% participation, and the versatility and dedication of the Gibbes Board and staff, we were able to reopen the Gibbes Museum on June 1st with all safety and occupancy protocols in place. Despite the immediate and long-term challenges that we have all faced, you, our community of supporters have enabled the Gibbes to press forward while continuing to make a difference in our community. Through our Gibbes family, we are reminded that we are not alone and that together we can conquer the obstacles ahead. We wholeheartedly thank you for your steadfast support as we have maneuvered an anxious time wrought with health and societal concerns. It is our hope that through our ongoing work we can engage artists and stakeholders in exhibitions, programs, and events that promote our values of inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility and offer support and healing to everyone. This does remain the work, and art is the reason. Ever grateful for your support,

ANGELA D. MACK Executive Director

Letter from the Board Chair W H AT A Y E A R 2 0 2 0 H A S B E E N ! I am sure that this time last year, no one could foresee a world-wide pandemic that would shut down the global economy, but that is what happened. Effective navigation of this new world demanded every ounce of creativity we could bring these past nine months. As Board Chair, I assure you that in terms of the financial health of the Gibbes during these extraordinary times, the intense work of the Board Finance Committee, along with Angela and the Director of Finance and Administration James G. Game, MBA, who was brand new to the Gibbes as of March 1st when the crisis began, cannot be overstated. This team successfully helped to weather the uncertainties of COVID as it was spreading. While difficult decisions had to be made to reduce expenses in light of evaporating revenues, I am proud to report that the Gibbes continues to hold steady. Additionally, while healthy financials are the foundation, the excitement is in the exhibitions and educational programming. Angela and the staff immediately pivoted to provide an art experience to members through virtual programming. Kudos to the curatorial team for adjusting the exhibition schedule as required by the pandemic and corresponding closure. Some exhibitions were postponed, some prolonged, and some replaced. Our committees and support groups adjusted their approaches with great results. From the phenomenal success of the young patron’s Society 1858, which raised $58K in its first ever online art auction, to the Gibbes Women’s Council, which continues to meet its goals through membership and the annual Art of Design Luncheon, to the annual Gibbes Distinguished Lecture Series program with its amazing committee led by co-chairs Deborah Kennard and Catherine Smith, who surpassed their fundraising goals in 2019, and again in 2020. I cannot say enough about our community of volunteers and donors. Thank you! Finally, I am proud to announce the formation of the “IDEA” Committee to increase Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility into the culture of the Gibbes Museum of Art. Through its 10-Year Strategic Plan (2018–2028), the Gibbes identified inclusion and accessibility as key areas of achievement in its collecting practices, exhibitions, educational programming, Board and staff. While much has been accomplished over the past few years, there is still much more to be done as the Gibbes strives to be a cultural leader for our community. Although uncertainty continues as we enter 2021, things are looking up. We are fortunate to have the tireless efforts of Angela and the devoted staff. On behalf of the Gibbes Board, we thank you for your support of this institution, and we will continue to need that support to tackle the challenges that lie ahead. Wishing you each a safe, healthy, and Happy Holiday Season. See you in the New Year! Onward,

HELEN C. PRATT-THOMAS Chair of Board of Directors

OUR MISSION The Gibbes Museum enhances lives through art by engaging people of every background and experience with art and artists of enduring quality, by collecting and preserving art that touches Charleston, and by providing opportunities to learn, discover, enjoy, and be inspired by the creative process.


THE GIBBES MANIFESTO The Gibbes Museum of Art is home to the foremost collection of American art that incorporates the story of Charleston. The Museum connects the city and region’s artistic past to a vibrant contemporary art scene. This is what we believe.

in our experience, rebuild what’s broken, nourish our souls, and release all that holds us back.

Art is the reason.

Art is the reason Charleston will endure.

A bustling seaport in the 1700s, Charleston was a melting pot of cultures, religions, and traditions. Powered by the labor of enslaved peoples in the rice and indigo trades, it was the 4th largest city in America in 1790—and the wealthiest. Like Philadelphia, Boston and New York, what distinguished Charleston then—was art. While we were home to some of America’s earliest art, collectors, and artists, who made the City both muse and subject—and took our turn as one of the nation’s richest cities—in money and culture—so were we also home to America’s original sin, slavery— and a war that divided our nation. In 1888, when Charleston was financially and culturally on its knees, benefactor James Gibbes left a bequest to the City to build an art museum.

Sean Sheridan

When the Gibbes Museum opened in 1905, the nation celebrated what Charleston has always understood: the power of art—to inspire our imagination, heal our hurt, revel

Through our complicated history, through light and shadow, we have persevered—humanity intact.

In Charleston, we believe art is the difference between merely existing and being truly alive. That’s why we immerse ourselves in every part of it—from fine art to craft—from nurturing its creation and celebrating its multicultural presentation—to inviting its interpretation and ensuring its preservation. Because when we open ourselves to art, we open ourselves to the world— to people and ideas, to beauty, craft, process and detail, to different cultures, to pain and pleasure, to questions, expression and emotion, to truth and transcendence. In the presence of art, we have the opportunity to see inside the artist’s heart, mind, and soul and feel what the artist felt. That understanding and compassion make us more understanding, compassionate people, who, in turn, create a more compassionate, understanding world.

That is art’s gift.

10-Year Strategic Plan 2018–2028

Strategies S T R AT E G I E S A R E WAY S BY W H I C H TO AC H I E V E T H E 2 0 2 8 G OA L S O F T H E G I B B E S . Each of the four strategies presented below are followed by an explanation of what constitutes success and initiatives to address each strategy.

revised September 2020

the Goals A S T H E G I B B E S FAC E S NEW AND CHALLENGING R E A L I T I E S , the Board and staff must work to develop programs and initiatives that maintain the integrity of the collection, encourage exhibition and education programs, foster community support, and generate revenue. To facilitate the identification of the goals, five focus areas were established. They are (i) Collections and Exhibitions, (ii) Creators, (iii) Connections, (iv) Constituencies, and (v) Contributions and Commercial Success. Under each focus area the Strategic Planning Committee identified goals for the 10-Year Plan (2028) to best serve the membership and strengthen the organization. To continually provide high-caliber experiences, our goals are to: 1. refine the quality of the Gibbes Collection and enhance the significance of the exhibitions; 2. deliver a museum experience that nurtures understanding from artistic conception to completed object; 3. achieve recognition as the hub for the creative arts that drive economic development in Charleston; 4. make the Gibbes inviting and accessible to all; 5. ensure stability and growth through robust business and development models.

STRATEGY 1

Optimize our value by exhibiting the highest quality art that is transformative and intellectually complex. I N I T I AT I V E 1 : Update and reorganize the Gibbes Collections Profile thematically such as African-American, Contemporary, and Decorative art.

Establish content themes for future exhibitions and programming that touch Charleston while connecting the Gibbes to the wider world of artists and museums.

I N I T I AT I V E 2 :

Incorporate exhibition planning strategies into a regular meeting of the Collections and Exhibitions Committee.

I N I T I AT I V E 3 :

STRATEGY 2

Develop and promote a museum experience that begins with the creative process. Re-align and balance creative opportunities from a focus on the traditional museum experience to actually conveying the unexpected experience that the renovated Gibbes delivers.

I N I T I AT I V E :

STRATEGY 3

Deliver educational programs that incorporate art and employ interdisciplinary learning strategies. I N I T I AT I V E 1 : Determine how art impacts learning and well-being;

I N I T I AT I V E 2 : Measure effectiveness of current education programs;

Use technology to develop tools that make the museum experience and museum programs more accessible;

I N I T I AT I V E 3 :

Finalize formal relationship with MUSC; Develop formal relationships with more community partners providing complementary programming (Citadel, College of Charleston, Metanoia, Charleston Jazz, for example).

I N I T I AT I V E 4 :

STRATEGY 4

Operate in a continuous development campaign mode.

I N I T I AT I V E 1 : Strategic upgrade of the development function. I N I T I AT I V E 2 : Implement an endowment fundraising strategy that mirrors the exhibition and programing content themes of Conservation and the Environment, Social Justice, Health and Wellness, and Innovation.

Implement the $800,000 matching gift campaign.

I N I T I AT I V E 3 :

I N I T I AT I V E 4 : Develop creative incentives and membership drives to increase membership. I N I T I AT I V E 5 : Utilize Gibbes Emeriti and Planned Giving Committees to increase awareness and participation in the James Shoolbred Gibbes Legacy Society.

In response to the financial challenges posed by COVID-19 and the recognition that clear and deliberate strategies and initiatives are needed to address inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility, the Gibbes Board is in the process of reviewing and revising the 10-Year Strategic Plan for completion in early 2021.

The Gibbes strives to present exhibitions that touch Charleston while connecting the Gibbes to the wider world of artists and museums. The Gibbes opened 7 special exhibitions in 2019–2020 but was forced to cancel the exhibition Fred Wilson: Afro Kismet due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fred Wilson’s work will be revisited in 2021.

A Charleston Grand Tour Experience In early January, the Gibbes hosted “A Charleston Grand Tour Experience” to accompany the opening of the exhibition A Return to the Grand Tour: Micromosaic Jewels from the Collection of Elizabeth Locke. The symposium featured jewelry designer and collector Elizabeth Locke, Susan Rawles, associate curator of American painting and Decorative Art, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and Angela D. Mack, executive director and chief curator of the Gibbes Museum of Art. Experts and scholars discussed the Grand Tour of the nineteenth century and the era’s fascination with the classics and societal requisite travel to the “cradle of western civilization.” The symposium culminated with a behind-thescenes tour with miniature portrait expert Elle Shushan, and exclusive tours of the Miles Brewton House, the Robert W. Roper House, Croghan’s Jewel Box, and other historic spots featuring unique decorative arts collections.

Acquisitions The Gibbes is grateful to the numerous donors and collectors who make it possible for the museum to acquire and exhibit the highest quality art. Over the course of the year, the Gibbes added 9 new works to the permanent collection – 6 works by gift and 3 purchases.

In spring 2020, the world paused for COVID-19. Joining museums across the world in adapting to this new challenge, the Gibbes leaned on creative ways to keep art alive from a safe, social distance. As we searched for new virtual ways to reach people during the pandemic, we put extra attention towards our Mobile App, which features works from both the permanent collection and special exhibitions. During the initial months of the COVID-19 pandemic, travel to Charleston was limited, inspiring our exhibitions team to curate “A Souvenir of Charleston,” a collection of views of Charleston that could be viewed from the comfort of your own home.

Pivoting during a Pandemic The untimely arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic forced our curatorial team to rearrange the spring exhibition schedule. Like many other organizations in Charleston (and throughout the world), the Gibbes temporarily closed its doors from March 18, 2020 until June 1, 2020. The Gibbes was forced to cancel the highly anticipated exhibition Fred Wilson: Afro Kismet, with plans to revisit Fred Wilson’s work in 2021. Winter exhibitions were extended, giving visitors extra months to view Central to Their Lives: Southern Woman Artists in the Johnson Collection, A Return to the Grand Tour: Micromosaic Jewels from the Collection of Elizabeth Locke, and Charleston Collects: British Sporting Art from the Penkhus Collection.

Expediting Exhibitions While Fred Wilson’s exhibition was put on hold, our curatorial team worked closely with renowned local artist Jonathan Green and his partner Richard Weedman to expedite the opening of the exhibition of their collection, previously scheduled to open in a future fiscal year. We were delighted to share the news that Building a Legacy: The Vibrant Vision Collection of Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman, would be open at an earlier date of August 21, 2020.

Visiting Artist Program The Gibbes strives to provide access to contemporary art through a vibrant Visiting Artist series. Complementing our exhibition program, the Visiting Artist series promotes creativity, introduces new art forms, provides perspective on larger community issues, encourages freedom of thought, and connects with the broadest possible audience. The program features 6 – 8 contemporary artists annually, whose work contributes to a new understanding of art in the South. Invitations are extended to emerging and nationally recognized artists whose work aligns with the Museum’s Collection Profile; whose work is in the Collection; or who have been identified as a finalist or winner of the 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art.

Earlier this spring we said goodbye to our beloved museum café. When the Daily at the Gibbes closed its doors in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Gibbes team quickly pivoted and built upon a concept that had been in the works for several months— an Art Sales Gallery that would feature past visiting artists.

The Ruth and Bill Baker Art Sales Gallery provides career support to artists selected for the Visiting Artist program through the professional display and sale of recent works. Presenting up to six exhibitions annually, the Art Sales Gallery was designed to offer an insightful, contemporary art experience that connects emerging as well as established collectors with artists at all levels of artistic endeavor. Located on the first floor of the Museum, the Gallery would be an extension of the education corridor, which furthers our visitors’ interaction with art from the art-making process to the exhibition of completed works. Kitchen furniture used by the café was retained for future pop-up use. We will cherish our memories of the Daily (and the avocado toast!), but are thrilled by the positive response that the Art Sales Gallery has already generated.

Education Initiatives IN-SCHOOL PROGRAMS AND GROUP TOURS The 2019–2020 school year started off with a bang. Art to Go met with three different schools over the fall and were inspired by temporary exhibitions on view at the Gibbes. Students from North Charleston High School were inspired by eye miniatures in Tabitha Vevers: Lover’s Eye. Fourth and fifth grade students from Angel Oak Elementary created a class macromosaic infused with micro-chip designs and inspired by A Return to the Grand Tour: Micromosaic Jewels from the Collection of Elizabeth Locke. First and fourth graders from Hunley Park Elementary experimented with portraits and still lives, looking closely at artwork in Central to Their Lives: Southern Women Artists in the Johnson Collection. A student mini-exhibition was on view in the Fellows Members Reception Hall and Almeida Lecture Hall from January 24–30, 2020. Families of the young artists joined us for a special reception and students from Hunley Park coordinated their school visit to coincide with the student exhibition. This program was sponsored in part by the Jerry and Anita Zucker Family Endowment, the Gibbes Women’s Council, and Wells Fargo.

It Starts With a Dot, a literacy-based program in collaboration with the College of Charleston and St. John’s High School, successfully met with students over the fall and spring semesters before schools were shut down. While we were unable to host a book launch for their poetry and art collection, we were able to produce a digital publication and shared that with all of the students at the school. This project was generously supported by Arts, etc. Eye Spy started in five different elementary schools across Charleston County. All in-person sessions were completed before the shut-down, but, unfortunately, none of the schools were able to come to the Gibbes for a guided museum experience (Charleston Progressive Academy missed their visit by one day!). We’ve been in touch with all of our classroom teachers and are working on virtual options for this year and are determined to continue this important program teaching visual and cultural literacy in the future. The Junior Docent Program with Charleston Day School got creative with their presentations this year. Students were able to visit the galleries twice before moving to remote learning. In a typical year, students give their final presentations on a chosen work of art in the galleries. This year, however, students presented their research on Zoom in front of virtual backgrounds featuring the artwork. We welcomed 1,859 students, teachers, and chaperones to the Gibbes for guided tours before the shut down in March, with almost 500 of those students coming from Title I schools.


M U S C PA R T N E R S H I P A N D THE ART OF HEALING We continued our partnership with the Medical University of South Carolina this year with two more sessions on visual literacy and communication skills. Dr. Cindy Dodd’s interprofessional class began meeting at the Gibbes in early 2020 but quickly transitioned to virtual learning. A second series led by Dr. Jeanne Hill worked with FLEX students in the humanities. All of these sessions were conducted virtually. Feedback from both professors was so positive that Dr. Hill scheduled a round of three sessions for the fall of 2020 with radiology students. Dr. Dodds continues to work on research and findings around the positive effects of working with artwork to improve empathy and communication skills with health practitioners. Becca Hiester, Director of Education and Programs, and Elise Detterbeck, Museum Educator, virtually presented these techniques and activities during Innovation Week at MUSC in June, 2020. PHYSICIAN-LED TOURS Dr. Jeb Hallett, Gibbes board member and retired physician, led a series of Artful Thinking tours in the museum, guiding visitors through slow looking and bringing many to a new appreciation of artwork. Two more retired physicians joined the roster for physician-led tours, also taking this slow-looking approach to appreciating and understanding artwork. Dr. Hallett led a virtual session from his summer home in Maine and demonstrated this practice on works from his own personal collection. COMMUNITY KITS The Education Committee assembled 150 packets during the summer of 2020 to distribute to neighborhoods in need that included an activity book and artmaking supplies. The booklet featured writing and artwork prompts inspired by works in the permanent collection. Supplies included were colored pencils, scissors, colored paper, glue sticks, and more to complete the suggested projects. We partnered with the Charleston County Public Library to share these packets with members of the community, focusing specifically on the John L. Dart, Edisto, and McClellanville branches. The Committee is eager to distribute another activity booklet featuring works from Building a Legacy: The Vibrant Vision Collection of Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman during Fall 2020.

C O L L A B O R AT I V E P R O G R A M M I N G WITH THE LIBRARY This year we continued our growing relationship with the Charleston County Public Library for all ages. Storytime in the galleries continues every other month and quickly transitioned from in-person to virtual learning opportunities. Literary Gibbes book club discussions also transitioned from in-person to virtual meetings over the summer and continue to provide engaging and robust conversations for visitors. Books this past year were inspired by temporary exhibitions and the permanent collection and ranged from artist memoirs (Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs by Sally Mann), to classics (A Room With a View by E.M. Forster), to comparative literature (A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolfe and In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens by Alice Walker), and young adult poetry (Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacquelin Woodson). This series is a great way to discuss themes around these exhibitions and is free and open to the public.

SUMMER CAMP Summer Camp did not look the same as it had in the past, but we are extremely proud of the four weeks of camp that we did offer in person. With additional safety and cleaning protocols in place for all teachers and students, we hosted 71 students over four weeks and 10 classes, ages 6–15. Despite many cancellations and changes in class structure, we still offered 9 scholarships through our Fraser Scholarship Fund. Instead of our traditional art show finale on Fridays, we shared virtual art shows with parents and families, featuring images and videos from throughout the week. We are unsure what summer 2021 will look like, but we know we’re ready to welcome these young artists with an inviting and safe environment for creative expression.

E V O LV I N G E D U C AT I O N What does museum education and programming look like in the age of COVID-19? Programs able to adapt to remote or virtual settings, like lectures, Jr. Docents, MUSC training sessions, and book club discussions, did so quickly. Instead of launching a new Saturday Stories workshop series we presented a series of virtual Illustrator chats, reaching an average of 1,534 people with each Facebook event. Instead of a Garden concert, we presented a virtual event featuring a new work by Ann Caldwell called Exodus: Bound for Freedom, reaching a total of 1,811 people. The social media team went to work creating short videos, like Collection Storage Shorts with Zinnia Willits and artmaking videos with Becca Hiester. Our curatorial team developed a menu of new mobile app tours, all available from a mobile phone or website, not just in the galleries. We continue to refine our virtual presentation skills to offer a combination of small, intimate, in-person events and larger virtual events. The Gibbes, as the only art museum in Charleston, loves welcoming students across the Charleston tri-county area into our galleries to share the world of art and creative expression through classes, workshops, and guided museum experiences. We are developing virtual lesson plans to share with schools that focus on five works in the permanent collection. These lessons introduce art elements as well as offer lessons on creative writing and STEAM topics. We are also implementing a Professional Development program for K-12 educators to demonstrate how to leverage the arts across the curriculum. Recognizing that virtual and remote learning will be here for the foreseeable future, we’re refining our virtual tour techniques to offer access to the Gibbes even if visitors cannot physically come to the building.

Program Highlights The 2019–2020 program calendar celebrated the visual arts as well as music, literature, film, and social activism with programs that were interdisciplinary, engaging and centered the stories of women artists and agents of social change. Developed in relation to Charles Williams’ SUN+LIGHT exhibition, the Gibbes Museum was honored to host a panel discussion Art+Social Justice: The Legacy of the Freedom Riders that invited participants in the Freedom Rides, one of the most effective nonviolent movements in American history, to Charleston to share their wisdom and experiences fighting for racial justice and integration. Panelists included author and Professor of Southern History at the University of South Florida, Dr. Raymond Arsenault, artist Charles Edward Williams and Freedom Riders Dr. Bernard Lafayette—close confidante to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—and Ms. Catherine Burks-Brooks. The following day the Gibbes hosted a screening of the PBS American Experience documentary Freedom Riders. Chamber Music in the Rotunda was a crowd favorite with the Charleston Symphony Chamber

Kicking off the exhibition Central to Their Lives: Southern Women Artists in the Johnson Collection, art historian and author, Martha Severens, gave an informative lecture, Southern Women Artists with Martha Severens. Ms. Severens traced the journey of women artists working in the late nineteenth century up through the early to mid twentieth centuries, and discussed how these women persisted against bias and discrimination to develop successful careers. With works of art and literature often inspiring one another, National Book Award-winning poet Nikky Finney, joined the Gibbes alongside local author and playwright Michele Moore, and College of Charleston Director of Southern Studies Julia Eichelberger for She Persisted: Women of Letters and the American South. This sold-out event put the experiences of Southern women writers in conversation with its artists, and considered the traditions that gave rise to voices like Eudora Welty, Zora Neale Hurston, and Harper Lee amongst others.

SEMC 2019 The Southeastern Museums Conference (SEMC) is one of the largest regional museum associations in the nation, representing twelve states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. SEMC serves all levels of museum professionals in primarily mid-size museums, including art, history, historic house/sites, science/technology, military and maritime, natural history, and children’s/youth museums, as well as specialized interest museums. In Fall 2019, we welcomed a record-breaking attendance of over 800 museum professionals to the city of Charleston. Zinnia Willits, Executive Director of SEMC (and former Director of Collections and Operations at the Gibbes) coordinated the Charleston-based conference, highlighted by “An Artful Evening” at the Gibbes and a full itinerary of events at other local museums and cultural institutions. Over 400 SEMC attendees visited the Gibbes for the Artful Evening planned by the Gibbes events team. The Gibbes also coordinated the SEMC Publications Competition and Zinnia served as emcee for the awards luncheon and keynote speaker Walter Hood, landscape designer for the new International African American Museum. Gibbes staff also had a strong presence in submitting proposals and participating in sessions focused on conservation of outdoor sculpture collections, leadership, mid-career realities, strategic planning, identifying new donors, security, and museum field trips. After two years of preparation, we are grateful that Charleston was able to be the host city for this important conference, only months before COVID would cancel these types of professional gatherings.

A H O L I DAY T R E AT The Gibbes family was excited to welcome Santa and Mrs. Claus to the Gibbes for the holidays in 2019. Set against the backdrop of the beautifully decorated Campbell Rotunda, Santa patiently heard the wishes from young art lovers. The couple snuck in some time at the galleries, making this a special visit from the North Pole. That same afternoon, we hosted a drop-in ornament workshop to create unique holiday ornaments inspired by the Gibbes dome.

Cathy Bennington Jenrette AU T H O R O F G I S F O R G I B B E S : A M U S E U M A B C B O O K P U B L I S H E D D E C E M B E R 2 0 1 9 BY T H E G I B B E S M U S E U M O F A R T Gibbes board member Cathy Jenrette had a vision to create a Gibbes ABC book. After mulling over the idea and taking note of other museums, she wanted to create a book that would represent the Gibbes’s unique collection. She calls it a “love letter to the Gibbes” that celebrates its collection and commitment to diversity and inclusion. In spring of 2018, Cathy shared her manuscript for a “museum ABC book” with Gibbes creative director Erin Banks, who is also a children’s book illustrator. With the editorial and curatorial expertise of Becca Hiester and Sara Arnold, they began planning the book. They identified works that were significant to the Gibbes permanent collection and agreed that these pieces would be key visuals throughout the book, although not beholden to the actual floorpan of the Gibbes. The Gibbes Gator (the mascot for Gibbes education programming) would lead readers on the ABC journey. Animal characters would be incorporated into the pages in an effort to create an imaginative world that is diverse and accessible for children. They wanted young readers to be open-minded about the experience of visiting a museum, and the juxtaposition of animal visitors walking through illustrated galleries seemed like the perfect way to be inclusive and inspiring. In December 2019, the vision became a reality when the Gibbes published G is for Gibbes: A Museum ABC Book. Available in the Gibbes Museum Store, as well as the online shop and select gift shops in Charleston, the book has become a favorite keepsake for museum

visitors. The book engages readers with works of art from the Gibbes Museum’s permanent collection, as well as broader art terms such as abstract art, colors, impressionism, drawing, and landscape. It also introduces readers to less familiar terms such as miniature portraits and restoration. G is for Gibbes allows children to experience the joy of visiting an art museum through the eyes of the Gibbes Gator and learn to love the alphabet in a whole new way. Cathy is an invaluable member of the Gibbes education committee, always willing to share her expertise and passion for kids. A native of North Carolina, Cathy taught for most of her 35-year career at Orange High School in Hillsborough, NC, and Duke University’s Young Writer’s Camp. Currently, she leads workshops in Reading and Writing at the Detention Center in Charleston. She and her husband, Buddy, a retired radiation oncologist, both UNC-CH alumni, divide their time between Charleston and Raleigh, depending on which grandchildren are available. (Her grandchildren have enjoyed seeing their “spirit animals” included in the book!) The Gibbes is so fortunate that Cathy shared her vision, time, and resources to create G is for Gibbes. It is truly a gift that will continue to educate and entertain readers of all ages for years to come. Nearly one year after launching, the book continues to be a bestseller in the Museum Store. The Gibbes has also donated copies of the books to local libraries and Title I schools, becoming a resource for educators and students throughout the Lowcountry. PAGE 35

Despite the challenges of COVID and the Museum shutting down on March 18 for 2.5 months, the Fellows were able to enjoy six months of activities prior to the world turning upside down. Wonderful exhibitions like Rauschenberg in Charleston; Influence and Inspiration: The Art of Jill Hooper, Ben Long and Frank Mason; We The People: Portraits of Veterans in America (City Gallery); A Return to the Grand Tour: Micromosaic Jewels from the Collection of Elizabeth Locke; Central to Their Lives: Southern Women Artists in the Johnson Collection; and Charleston Collects: British Sporting Art from the Penkhus Collection all took place in 2019–20 offering our Fellows wonderful lectures, panel discussions, and intimate conversations featuring incredible works of American art. In January 2020, Fellows and special guests experienced a special opportunity to participate in “A Charleston

Grand Tour.” This unique offering showcased a wonderful symposium, access to private collections and historic homes, and exclusive receptions all coinciding with the Micromosaic exhibition. While we were so disappointed that the illustrious artist Fred Wilson, who was also our Distinguished Lecture speaker in November 2019, was not able to install his exhibition Afro Kismet in partnership with Spoleto Festival USA and the opera Omar, the annual end-of-the-season celebration of our Fellows was cancelled, and our Fellows trip in June 2020 was postponed, the staff quickly pivoted to provide some virtual programming for Fellows that took place over the summer months. In June 2020, all Fellows gathered virtually to share cocktails and conversation with acclaimed

artist Jonathan Green and his partner and studio director, Richard Weedman, who over the last 40 years have amassed a significant collection of 20th and 21st century American paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. This special evening allowed Fellows to hear how Richard and Jonathan came to collect certain works that are now currently on view at the Gibbes in the Building a Legacy exhibition. The support of our Fellows has remained steadfast during this challenging period in our history and for that we remain truly grateful. We will continue to seek the advice and counsel of our Fellows as we maneuver these difficult times, but we will also do our best to engage them in ways that are healthy and safe. This coming year, we have implemented a number of small, socially-distanced activities, but we promise to provide a menu of offerings that include virtual activities.

Gibbes was a great lover of art, and this philanthropy award recognizes individuals who embody these same principles. Each year during the annual Fellows Luncheon we recognize an individual, group, or business who share these same principles. While we were not able to host the annual Fellows Luncheon this year due to COVID, the board and staff were able to bestow the James Shoolbred Gibbes Philanthropy Award to immediate past Board chair Susan Smythe. S U S A N S M Y T H E , whose remarkable contributions as a member of the Gibbes Board since 2011, including her service as Board chair in 2018, specifically relate to Gibbes governance and the successful completion of the Historic Tax Credit process that substantially benefitted the Gibbes restoration and renovation project. Susan is a Principal in the law firm of Womble Carlyle Sandridge and Rice, PLLC, handling corporate matters, commercial transactions, real estate and conservation easements. Her leadership has truly made a lasting difference for the Gibbes and we will be forever grateful. We are thrilled to welcome her to this illustrious group of James Shoolbred Gibbes award recipients.

Spotlight on Philanthropy In early 2019, the Gibbes was honored to be the winner of the prestigious South Carolina Governor’s Award for the Arts, for outstanding achievement in the organization category! This award is the highest honor given for the arts in South Carolina. The Gibbes was also thrilled to receive the 2019 Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce Beacon Award, which was accepted by Board President Helen Pratt-Thomas on behalf of the Museum.

And we were delighted to attend the annual National Philanthropy Day Luncheon hosted by the South Carolina Lowcountry Chapter of The Association of Fundraising Professionals, where the Joseph J. Schott Foundation was the recipient of the 2019 Outstanding Foundation or Community Organization Award. Betsy Saal, Gibbes board member and trustee of the Schott Foundation received the award.

Emergency Funding Grants The Gibbes is so thankful for the emergency funding provided to us during several months of closure. Art Bridges Foundation support of $40,000 enabled digital initiatives during the pandemic and the implementation of safety measures throughout the Museum. (Funding for the Bridge Grants was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan. A $7,500 grant from the South Carolina Humanities supported digital programming for our Art of Jazz series, along with a portion of the cleaning needed in the galleries for safe reopening. And a $3,126 grant from the South Carolina Arts Commission helped to support the Gibbes during this financially challenging season.

2021 DISTINGUISHED LECTURE SERIES featuring Dr. Carla Hayden, 14th Librarian of Congress


1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art The beginning of 2020 was filled with celebration and conversation surrounding contemporary Southern art as Society 1858 and the Gibbes Museum of Art welcomed the 2019 Prize winner Donté K. Hayes to Charleston for the Amy P. Coy Forum and Winter Party. Hayes, a Georgiabased ceramicist, explores themes in Afrofuturism, a projected vision of an imagined future that critiques the historical and cultural events of the African Diaspora and the distinct black experience of the Middle Passage. Hayes was awarded a $10,000 cash prize and his latest work Sanctuary is on view in the Gibbes’ Mary Jackson Modern and Contemporary Gallery throughout 2020. The introduction of artwork on display by the winner is a new initiative for the Museum, with the intention to further provide visibility for the winning artist as well as the opportunity for the community to experience first-hand who the Museum recognizes as a leader for contemporary art in the South.

Society 1858 Since 2010, Gibbes auxiliary group Society 1858 has celebrated contemporary Southern art through the Amy P. Coy Forum recognizing the achievements of locally and nationally renowned artists. Their annual 1858 Winter Party helps to raise funds to support the esteemed 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art. Collectively, these events attract over 300 attendees and supporters and provide engaging experiences that reflect Society 1858’s mission to educate and excite up-and-coming arts patrons about the diverse range of artwork being created in the contemporary South. Support for the Amy P. Coy Forum and Winter Party has generated over $200K, which has provided funding for the 1858 Prize and exhibition programming at the Gibbes. In addition to ongoing membership meetings, Society 1858 members enjoyed a wine and walking tour with prominent Charleston painters Rhett Thurman and Richard Hagerty, a members-only studio visit with Visiting Artist David Boatwright, and a Pre-Lecture Happy Hour with Spoleto SCENE in conjunction with the 2019 Distinguished Lecture Series, and the annual Society 1858 holiday party.

In addition, 21 artists contributed pieces to a raffle that would help to raise funds during the one-night fundraising event.

A U G U S T 2 6 –2 8 , 2 0 2 0 In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Society 1858 planned the “Give Back to the Gibbes” virtual art auction to launch in late August 2020. Over 60 artists participated, featuring a number of 1858 Prize winners including Bo Bartlett, Alicia Henry, and John Westmark. Proceeds from the auction generated $58,000, providing critical support for Gibbes exhibitions and programming.

P I VOT I N G T H E S T R E E T PA R T Y F U N D R A I S I N G E V E N T When COVID-19 forced us to cancel the annual Gibbes on the Street Party, we pivoted to host a virtual event — Gibbes on the Couch, asking our community to join us from the safety of their homes and order takeout from one of the restaurants originally scheduled to be on the street with us.

While participants shared their favorite bites on social media, many also donated to support the Museum’s exhibition and educational programming. The Gibbes Spring Soiree, planned for April 2021, will take the place of the Street Party this year as we continue to adapt our fundraising events during the pandemic.

Pausing for a Pandemic In early 2020, the Gibbes faced the untimely reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing the Museum to temporarily close its doors from March 18, 2020 until June 1, 2020. The curatorial team quickly adapted the 2020 exhibition schedule, canceling Fred Wilson: Afro Kismet, while extending the current exhibitions Central to Their Lives: Southern Woman Artists in the Johnson Collection, A Return to the Grand Tour: Micromosaic Jewels from the Collection of Elizabeth Locke, and Charleston Collects: British Sporting Art from the Penkhus Collection. The education and programming team swiftly adjusted in-person classes and events, and created a robust calendar of virtual lectures, tours, online classes, activities, and creative engagement opportunities such as the quarantine-inspired “Museum Challenge” recreations of works from the Gibbes collection. The private events team worked closely with brides and vendors to reschedule weddings and other bookings, creating new offerings for micro-weddings and elopements that would cater to socially distant future rentals. The Museum Store created an online shop, enabling shoppers to purchase items on the website, including a popular line of Gibbes collection masks. The former café space was renovated and plans for the “Art Sales Gallery” was put into motion, that would showcase the visiting artist program and create a new line of revenue for the Museum. The development team fervently applied for emergency grants and alternative sources of funding, converting the annual Street Party to an at-home “Gibbes on the Couch” virtual fundraiser in April, and supporting Society 1858 with the “Give Back to the Gibbes” virtual art auction that would launch in late August. And when the Museum doors reopened on June 1, the Gibbes offered a safe space for visitors to find respite in art, through mandatory mask requirements, limited capacity, contact-free admission, frequent cleaning of high touch surfaces, and reminders to keep a safe 6-foot distance from other guests. Through the support of the Gibbes board, auxiliary groups, members, and the Charleston community, the Gibbes continues adapting to challenge and clinging to our mantra, Art is the Reason.

Town Hall Series As Gibbes staff got back to work and many parts of the country began to reopen, we realized that many in our community would be grappling with questions about what community looks like in the age of COVID-19 and in the wake of a reckoning, nationwide, with racial injustice.

the Lowcountry Rice Culture Project, which honed in on the stories and experiences of the Lowcountry’s Black farming communities and the ways in which agricultural innovation among communities of African descent has been represented in art.

Inspired by the exhibition Building a Legacy: The Vibrant Vision Collection of Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman and the diverse voices it represents, we organized For Which it Stands: A Virtual Town Hall Series to meet that need for meaningful dialogue head on.

And finally, on October 17th, in partnership with the SC LGBTQ Project: Oral Histories, Archives, and Outreach, we presented The Real Rainbow Row where we discussed LGBTQ+ history in the Lowcountry and the challenges to documenting and interpreting those stories.

On August 29th we kicked off the series with Ecos: Arte Urgente in partnership with the Citadel’s Oral History Project. The event focused on the experiences of the Lowcountry’s often invisibilized Lantinx artists and immigrant communities.

In addition to yielding 50–60 virtual viewers each Saturday, this project was a great example of the power of coalition building among other cultural institutions, and of how art and artists can help us as a community navigate through difficult times. We are thankful to Art Bridges Foundation and Bank of America for making these community discussions possible.

On September 26th we hosted Art and Agriculture: Black Farming and Foodways in partnership with

“Museum revenue disappeared overnight when the pandemic closed all cultural institutions, and sadly, many will never recover… Even with a partial reopening in the coming months, costs will outweigh revenue and there is no financial safety net for many museums. The distress museums are facing will not happen in isolation. The permanent closure of 12,000 museums will be devastating for communities, economies, education systems, and our cultural history.” – L A U R A L O T T, P R E S I D E N T & C E O , AMERICAN ALLIANCE OF MUSEUMS

Private Events In 2019, the Gibbes saw an incredible event season, full of wedding extravaganzas, elegant cocktail parties, and corporate soirees. Then, 2020 hit. Although the Event Industry suffered an unimaginable amount, the Gibbes quickly adapted to the new normal brought on by COVID-19. We created special pricing for Micro-wedding and elopement clients, we facilitated reschedules, and we navigated ways to safely host events that decided to follow through, albeit with smaller guest counts, sanitation stations, and masks. We are immensely grateful for our rental clients that have stuck with us, and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store! It’s only up-hill from here!
