Behind the Scenes at the Gibbes (and Other Charleston Sites)

Explore the Gibbes Museum of Art with a special behind-the-scenes tour of the storeroom led by the Museum's executive director, Angela D. Mack, and curatorial staff. Visitors will have a chance to see where works are kept when not on display, and also learn more from curators about what it takes to put on an exhibition. The event takes place tomorrow, March 18, at 2 p.m. and is part of the five-day Charleston Art & Antiques Forum. Tickets cost $25. Click here to check current online availability.

If you would rather just look at pretty Charleston-related pictures from your computer, hop over to Charleston Weddings. Event planner Tara Guerard has once again brought modernity to the historic William Aiken House. (Be sure to note the floating IKEA chairs!) Photos by Squire Fox.

Above, another view of the fun chairs courtesy Tara's new blog, BonBon.
