Realm of the Spirit: Solomon R. Guggenheim Collection and the Gibbes Museum of Art

In 1936, the Gibbes Museum of Art presented the first formal exhibition of Solomon R. Guggenheim’s collection of modern art, and the show brought international attention to Charleston. Now, 80 years after the first exhibition, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Gibbes Museum of Art have come together to revisit this important intersection in these institutions’ histories. Realm of the Spirit: Solomon R. Guggenheim Collection and the Gibbes Museum of Art features 36 masterworks presented in the original exhibitions by artists such as Marc Chagall, Vasily Kandinsky, Fernand Leger, Pablo Picasso, Robert Delaunay, Amedeo Modigliani, and Georges Seurat. The exhibition runs October 22nd – January 15th at the Gibbes Museum of Art. Tickets $6-$17.
