About Us

In 2015, we will mark the 18th anniversary of The Charleston Art & Antiques Forum. Jean Y. Helms founded the Forum in 1996, and she continues to lead the Forum. The Mission of the Forum is to present the best fine and decorative arts scholarship to our participants, and to benefit arts education and preservation. The Charleston Art & Antiques Forum is a non-profit, charitable 501 (c) (3) corporation.

Each year, an overall theme is selected and noted scholars are invited to present current information on the topic from their own professional perspective and experience. Forum lectures take place in small-scale venues with dynamic Q&A sessions between speakers and participants that show the interest and knowledge of the audience and the expertise of the speakers. Following each year's Forum, its Board of Directors presents a monetary award to the selected beneficiary. Proceeds raised by the 2015 Charleston Art & Antiques Forum will benefit The Charleston Museum. Established in 1773, while South Carolina was still a British colony, the Museum was a product of the colonial experience of New World discovery, and the first museum in North America.

The Forum Board and its Advisors volunteer their time, talent, and expertise to offer you what truly is the Premier Lecture Series in America. About Us
