To me the real art of the Gibbes is the building itself. The organization started in 1858. This building was completed in 1905.

A collection of 10,000 + pieces is owned, however in the magnificent rotunda room only a few marble busts are displayed. The room takes center stage.

In this photograph the center building rotunda is the roof of the Gibbes.

We need to return on a cloudy day to shoot through the rotunda again. The glass will have a completely different look.
