Last week, the Gibbes Museum of Art opened a new exhibition in conjunction with Kids on Point, a local nonprofit that aims to provide accessible, all-inclusive, high-quality summer programs to underserved families. The exhibit features 27 photographs from 15 students at Title 1 schools in Charleston County. The works are on display in the Gibbes' first floor lecture hall (which is free to enter), and will be on view through Sun. Aug. 12.
