Conversation with a Curator: Archivist and Collections Manager Jennifer McCormick on Snow Days in Charleston

On February 10, at 10:30 am, join Archivist and Collections Manager Jennifer McCormick in our Lowcountry Image Gallery to learn about the recent exhibit Snow Days in Charleston: The Great Blizzard of 1899. For two weeks in February, a massive snow storm swept across the United States. Charleston experienced a mixture of snow and sleet February 11 - 12. Undaunted by the weather, amateur photographers Robert Achurch, Franklin Frost Sams, Leila Waring and Sabina Elliott Wells, trudged through the drifts with their heavy cameras to capture this extraordinary snowfall on the peninsula. Archivist and Collections Manager, Jennifer McCormick, will take you further into the history of Charleston at the time of the Great Blizzard of 1899 as seen through the lens of these four determined photographers.

Conversations with a Curator allows visitors a chance to have an intimate look at an exhibit in The Charleston Museum, hear stories, ask questions and spark conversations. The Museum's collections are both extraordinary and diverse and each Curator-led talk and tour will allow participants to immerse themselves in different areas of Charleston's history.

All Conversations with a Curator programs are open to the public and FREE for Members and FREE with admission.

Conversations with a Curator programs are typically held on the second Friday of each month, with a few exemptions.
