McMahan’s Mini Museum

While the fancy culture high season doesn’t officially start until Friday with the launch of Spoleto, this weekend we did attend the opening of world’s largest collection of the greatest works of art…in miniature form. Richard McMahan has spent the past 18 years producing over 1,100 tiny replicas of cave paintings, Greek and Roman art, Cubist masterpieces, art nouveau furniture, etc. He’s never been to the Louvre or Prado, but he has studied all the works through books in his local library in Jacksonville.

It’s a pretty incredible site…and journey through the history of art. The display itself is worth the visit, as students from the Clemson Architecture Center in Charleston developed a unique and fitting exhibition space located within the College of Charleston library.

Check it out online…and then head over for a visit.
