Here are some photographs of the installation at the Gibbes. The Gibbes is one of the oldest museums in the South and the beautiful Beaux Arts style building first opened in 1905. The opening night festivities for Sound and Vision were extraordinary and our next post will detail those activities.

      My wife saw the Sound and Vision exhibi at the Gibbes Art Gallery in Charleston SC. She inquired at the gift shop how she could purchase a black and white photo print of John Lennon standing in a doorway and was directly to your website.

      I tried several links but didn’t find one by your company that had this item for sale.

      Can you give me any information how I can order the print?

      Thanks very much.
