Legacy: Celebrating the Impact of Harvey Gantt Art Exhibition

“Legacy: Celebrating the Impact of Harvey Gantt” seeks to re-tell the story of the surrounding Harvey Gantt’s life and the events that changed South Carolina, Clemson, and our community. 
The exhibit showcases research conducted by current Clemson students and photographs taken by Cecil Williams as a backdrop to work created by individuals affiliated with Clemson University. Specifically, the exhibit makes visible the impact Harvey Gantt has had on decades of Clemson students and celebrates the Legacy he has created and inspired. Yet, different from previous celebrations, the exhibit serves as a counter-narrative bringing to view overlooked and undocumented voices to current histories mostly based on the limited records of institutional archives. Metaphorically, it is an interactive and immersive exhibition like a quilt fusing the work of many eyes and hands.
