Over 90 percent of the photographs housed in the Museum’s Archives are black and white. And while many viewers find them historically charming, others find it difficult to see particular details within the image. By colorizing a black and white photograph, certain components otherwise overlooked, come to life. Join Chief of Collections Jennifer McCormick to view 20 black and white photographs (not on exhibit) that have been transformed to living color.
Curator Talk programs provide visitors with an overview of a specified topic related to the Museum’s extraordinary and diverse collections before exploring the galleries on their own. Held in the Arthur M. Wilcox Auditorium, each Curator-led talk allows participants to immerse themselves in different areas of Charleston’s rich history with insight provided by the Museum’s knowledgeable curatorial staff. Conversations with a Curator and Curator Talks programs are typically held on the second Friday of each month.
All Curator Talk programs are open to the public and FREE for Members and FREE with admission. Per CDC recommendations, masks are encouraged if you have not been fully vaccinated.
