Brookgreen Gardens in Pawleys Island, SC, Offers an Exhibit on Gullah Geechee Heritage

Brookgreen Gardens in Pawleys Island, SC, is presenting the exhibit, Etched In the Eyes, The Spirit of a People Called Gullah Geechee, featuring photographs by David Herman, Jr., on view through Mar. 2, 2012.

This exhibition documents the African Diaspora of the low country and Sea Islands along the eastern coastline or North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida through captivating wall prints with text panels.

According to photographer and visual sociologist David Herman, Jr., “This ever-expanding collection of narratives provides an intimate experience with the culture that ebbs and flows along the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor. It will allow you to cross a bridge that will never be destroyed, a bridge that although burdened by the trades of time has stood because of deep roots in the spirit.”

This preeminent collection of American representational sculpture includes - 560 works by 240 artists - representing such well-known artists as Charles Parks, Daniel Chester French, Carl Milles, August Saint-Gaudens and Anna Hyatt Huntington.
