CHARLESTON (AP) — The National Endowment for the Humanities has awarded a half million dollars for projects in Charleston and Columbia.
The Gibbes Art Gallery in Charleston is getting $250,000 to improve storage for the museum’s collections which focus on the American South.
The second grant is for $200,000 for the University of South Carolina. The university will use the funds for a three-week institute for 30 school teachers. It will focus on the Reconstruction era in South Carolina, Georgia and on the sea islands in both states.
