So much so that Libby said goodbye to law and medicine and pursued a career in the arts, arts education and arts administration. Now the University of Floridas School of Art + Art History is renaming its Focus Gallery as the Gary R. Libby Gallery.
The honor is in recognition of the philanthropy and ongoing support of Libby, a UF news release said.
The announcement was a big surprise, said Libby, a Daytona Beach resident. Its a wonderful thrill. It makes you feel that everything youve done has been appreciated.
While Libby served 25-plus years as director of the Museum of Arts & Sciences in Daytona Beach, he also supported and served as an advocate for his alma mater, especially its arts programs. That support includes a previous $100,000 gift, a recent $100,000 gift and a transformational estate gift, said a university spokeswoman.
Libby is very dedicated to education, said Amy Vigilante, director of UFs University Galleries.
...
Its very fitting for Gary.
Libbys recent gift will allow Focus Gallery, one of UFs three on-campus art galleries, to expand its offerings to also include alumni shows and more formal shows than weve had in the past, said Vigilante, who considers Libby to be a mentor.

Libby, 70, still serves as director emeritus of the Museum of Arts & Sciences. He also is past president of the Florida Art Museum Directors Association and former secretary of the Florida Association of Museums, which honored him with its Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998.
As an art historian, Libbys books include a new edition of Cuba: A History in Art, Reflections: Paintings of Florida 1865-1965 and Reflections II: Watercolors of Florida 1835-2000.

Gary Libby remembers growing up in Fort Myers where we didnt have a museum.

As a student at the University of Florida in the mid-1960s, he was vacillating between law and pre-med when he walked into the brand new art and architecture complex and the galleries there, Libby said. What an eye-opener it was for me. It was transformational.

Hes been a leader and such a supporter.

The opening of the gallery at the University of Florida it opened all of these experiences for me, Libby said. I mean, meeting Andy Warhol and being able to take him around campus for a weekend things that were just transforming for me.

A ceremony in honor of the renaming will be held in the fall.

Libby, 70, still serves as director emeritus of the Museum of Arts & Sciences.

Gary Libby, executive director of the Museum of Arts and Sciences and a member of the Main Street Redevelopment Area advisory board, puts it this way: "The challenge is to find a balance, a formula, that keeps the business community happy but not at the expense of everyone else.I think we can do that."
Libby foresees compromises that buffer residential neighborhoods from commercial corridors; allow driving on some, but not all, sections of the beach; orient tall buildings from east to west to keep sunlight and ocean air flowing toward residences; and ensure plenty of green spaces between tall buildings.
...
Libby and attorney Burnett say they believe new Daytona Beach City Manager Jim Chisholm will provide badly needed leadership.
...
"He might have the skills, knowledge and talent we need," Libby says.

Gary Libby, executive board member and former president of the Heritage Preservation Trust as well as former chair of the Volusia ECHO Advisory Committee, was instrumental in his encouragement that ECHO funding be available to nonprofit groups, cities, and the county to purchase endangered significant historic sites. For a non-profit group like the Trust, this means we can apply for grant money with reduced matching funds. Volusia ECHO is a voter-approved program that supports project in environmental cultural heritage and outdoor recreation areas.
This new program opens the door for historic groups to acquire and preserve important heritage sites.
The Trust applauds the efforts of Mr. Libby, the ECHO Advisory Committee, and the Volusia County Council for their wisdom in opening a venue which will encourage the preservation of our heritage.
