What goes up must come down. Following the close of The Art of the Brick® exhibition on Sunday, September 11, the Art Museum will be closed through September 26 to allow staff members to dismantle the exhibit and prepare the Museum’s galleries for three new exhibits. If you would like to visit the Museum Shop while we’re closed, be sure to “Knock to Shop” (or call the Art Museum at 843.238.2510) and we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect gift.
