Exhibit, Lecture and Reception

Friday, September 24

Marlene and Nathan Addlestone Library

Room 227, 6 p.m.

Red Room by William Halsey

As part of the William Halsey and Corrie McCallum exhibit at the College of Charleston Library, Angela Mack, Executive Director of the Gibbes Museum of Art, will speak about the impact of both artists on Charleston and the national art scene. Mark Sloan, director and senior curator of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and Caroline Cobb Wright, art historian and former intern of William Halsey, will share their perspectives on the artists via video, pre-recorded for this event.
William Halsey and Corrie McCallum donated a number of their works and their papers to the College of Charleston. In addition, several generous donors have added to this collection. Many of these paintings are now on permanent display at the Marlene and Nathan Addlestone Library and serve as the focal point of the exhibit. The exhibit also includes prints, photographs and a letter from Lady Bird Johnson thanking Corrie McCallum for a print she was given on a visit to Charleston.
