Whether you’re stuck inside and working from home or cautiously out and about, we’ve got some ways to both engage with and support the local arts during these uncertain times. If you feel sick, please stay home and check out our online arts options:
Check out the variety of e-books and audio books available online via Charleston County Public Libraries (the library just bought more to make them even more accessible).
Take advantage of Charleston’s early Spring weather and stroll around the city, checking out the wide variety of public art all over town. We chatted with some local muralists a few years ago who gave us the scoop on creating public art.
Speaking of outside arts opportunities, this week may be the perfect time to check out Enough Pie’s Butterfly Book Nook, located on Upper King Street across the street from Food Lion. Outfitted with benches in a quaint, calm oasis, this is the perfect place to read a book or just take a few deep breaths.
As of Thurs. March 19 the Charleston Museum and its historic homes will be closed. The Museum is offering online offerings, though, including talks with museum curators. These videos will be streamed via Facebook Live. The museum will also be releasing videos from all collections and lessons for kids, on Instagram and Facebook.
