Spoleto Festival USA: Jonathan Green Pop-Up Shop

A few weeks ago we participated in a pop-up shop event unveiling world-renowned artist Jonathan Green’s costume and design sketches for Spoleto Festival USA’s 2016 production of Porgy and Bess. We recently received the professional images from photographer, Anne Rhett and had to share.

Team Hamby had a blast participating in this pre-festival event and sharing our food with gallery-goers. Guests enjoyed browsing Green’s pieces while enjoying our Tea Sandwiches, Caprese Skewers, Carolina Pit Ham Biscuits, and assorted desserts.
