The Gibbes Museum of Art is offering guests a chance to meet Jonathan Green, one of the most important contemporary painters of the Southern experience. Guests will learn about what inspired Green’s artwork and experience a rare glimpse into his aesthetic interests behind the exhibition Building a Legacy: The Vibrant Vision Collection of Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman, currently on display at the Gibbes.
A South Carolina native, Jonathan Green is best known for his vibrant depictions of Gullah culture or the descendants of enslaved Africans who settled between northern Florida and North Carolina in the 19th century. After serving in the United States Air Force, he attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and received a BFA in 1982.
