Event lighting rentals Charleston SC by AV Connections at the Gibbes Museum

Event lighting rentals Charleston SC by AV Connections

Our event lighting rentals Charleston SC group was hard at work on a bittersweet task this past week, we were asked to light the magnificent Gibbes Museum for the last time until 2016. The grand old girl, Charleston SC’s most venerable museum institution will close for renovations until 2016. The Gibbes Museum committee wanted the Museum to have an appropriate send off into the construction of her future.

An amazing team of vendors, including our event lighting rentals Charleston SC technology group, was assembled to create both a memorable evening event to say goodbye, but also a full day of activities for every age. Although we were said to hear of her closing, we were honored to create the event lighting design for her send off.

The Renovation Celebration held by the Gibbes Renovation Committee, was a resounding success. During daylight hours there were children’s activities and demonstrations, and two hundred people arrived to do yoga together in the upstairs gallery. It was quite a sight and wonderful gesture.

For the evening even from 6-9 pm, AV Connections lit the outdoor courtyard truly from pillar to post and from ground to stars. we installed Charleston uplights and Charleston uplighting on all of the trees surrounding the courtyard. cafe bulbs were strung overhead. Colorful Charleston uplighting was added to the front of the Gibbes Museum by AV Connections to welcome guests and promise a spectacular evening under the stars. And finally, uplights, gobos, and video screens were installed throughout the building. The courtyard became an elegant evening party and AV Connections turned the main gallery into a dance club upstairs.

We had a great time with it and we were so pleased to be the ones to give really beautiful light to her last night of celebration for years to come. We’ve celebrated most of Charleston’s incredible causes and buildings with great event lighting rental work over our thirty-years in business. But some moments are more moving than others. It will be sad to see her go for now but we know an incredible renovation awaits her and she is very much deserving as are the people of Charleston and our visitors. Farewell for now, Gibbes.
