For Loretta Jean Webber, having art on the walls is what makes a home. The 76-year-old’s love for the arts began in 1974 when she and her late husband, Spurgeon, began supporting the Afro-American Cultural Center in Charlotte. They began donating to and volunteering with The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture when it opened in 2009. Since Webber’s husband passed away last December, she is committed to continuing their shared tradition of giving to the Gantt and supporting the arts in Charlotte.
