Guests came to the Gibbes Museum of Art to view the exhibition, curated by newly appointed Executive Director Angela D. Mack, called "Landscape of Slavery: The Plantation in American Art". There were large scrims in orange (Identity), red (Politics), purple (Protest), and green (Nostalgia), that helped tell the story of the exhibition-- very powerful, please go see it!I brought the colors down to the Courtyard for the party, which not only tied it into the exhibition, but also gave the party a splash of Spring!
Duvall Decor helped with some really beautiful pieces from their rattan furniture collection, sheer pole covers and the colorful draping. I rented the tables/linens/chairs from Snyder, the Gibbes Women's Council flower committee did the fab florals, and Carolina Catering did the food and bar.
The menu included southern delights like duck and collard spring rolls, shrimp on mini grit cakes with remoulade sauce, and key lime tart sandwiched between benne seed wafers.
