The first exhibition space was the Whittaker Gallery located in the basement of the college library. The Museum's present building was constructed in 1980 and is named for the first African-American chairman of the University's Board of Trustees, Isreal Pinkney Stanback, a prominent businessman and philanthropist from Columbia, South Carolina.

The I.P.
