Garden & Gun to Present “Birdwatching,” a New Avian-inspired Art and Conservation Exhibition



From February 11th to April 3rd, Garden & Gun will present “Birdwatching,” a new avian-inspired art and conservation exhibition.

Drawing from nature, the splendors of bird-watching, and the interconnectivity between humans and the natural world, this immersive experience takes viewers on a journey between the Joseph Manigault House, The Dewberry hotel, and the Garden & Gun offices at the Cigar Factory, sparking wonder and awareness of avian conservation. Curated and artistically directed by Kelly S. Turner, each individual birdscape is inspired by eighteenth- and nineteenth-century artist-naturalists and features the work of artists Brandon Ballengée, Clare Celeste Börsch, and J. Drew Lanham.

Here’s a look at the schedule:

Joseph Manigault House, 350 Meeting Street

Staged throughout the historic home, this immersive installation offers encounters with rare and endangered bird specimens as they soar through doorways, perch on mantles, and flutter in unexpected places. In each room, whimsical scenes showcase artifacts and objects from the Charleston Museum’s vast collections alongside various contemporary works, together contextualizing Southeastern birds and bringing Lowcountry histories to life.

Hours: Monday-Saturday | 10AM-5PM, Sunday | 12-5PM

The Living Room at the Dewberry Hotel, 334 Meeting Street

Sidle up to the Living Room’s inviting bar or nestle into a chic banquette to savor three exclusively crafted cocktails, each with special details and accompaniments inspired by Southeastern birds. A site of the Garden & Gun Birdwatching exhibition, the Living Room hosts a one-of-a-kind topiary installation depicting the great North American wood stork. A treasured bird of the Southeast, the wood stork is a once-endangered species now on the cusp of reemergence thanks to recent environmental stewardship efforts.
