Gibbes on the Street IV
The fourth annual Gibbes on the Street party took over Meeting Street on Thursday, May 2.
The carny trend has been making its colorful rounds amongst Charleston’s fetes in the last year, and Theatre Marvelosa provided plenty of costumes, jugglers, and dancers at this year’s Gibbes on the Street IV party.
Partygoers crowded into to the annual benefit despite dubious weather, happy to partake in the fabulous eats and great company at the event. People mingled for a moment before delving into the lines for various chefs’ stations, often vying in position to grab a small plate. “The people at this event are just vicious!” one partygoer laughed, struggling to reach Chef Craig Deihl’s bologna and cheese sammy.
Everyone squeeze and finagled their way around the various food stations, delighting in Chef Jeremiah Langhorne’s pork belly lettuce wraps and Chefs’ Sarah O’Kelley and Chris Stewart’s shrimp remoulade lettuce wraps.
Pint-sized cocktails circulated on platters while partygoers noshed and chatted despite the threatening weather, and soon the Theatre Marvelosa performers wove about the crowd, leering and dancing.
The fourth annual Gibbes on the Street party benefitted the Gibbes Museum of Art. The Gibbes Museum of Art opened its doors to the public in 1905. Located in Charleston’s historic district, the Gibbes houses a collection of over 10,000 works, as well as offering an extensive complement of public programming and educational outreach initiatives that serve the community by stimulating creative expression and improving the region’s quality of life.
