Hi! My name is Becca Hiester I have been with the Gibbes Museum of Art for almost ten years, first as a volunteer with collections and then as part of the education team. I am a native of Charleston with a graduate-level background in European and Ancient Greek art. I fell in love with this unique collection of American art at The Gibbes Museum almost instantly. Some of my favorite works in the collection are from the miniature portrait collection and the special installation by Patrick Dougherty, but every next exhibition unearths a new favorite. I can’t wait to share them with you!
