What is this?

This blog will be a resource for recording thoughts, ideas, schemes, and anything else that develops on the way to forming a unified voice and center for the Charleston arts community. Everything presented here is subject to change.

How does this work?

There will be a designated set of authors who will be responsible for posting topics for discussion, to begin with anyone may comment on a discussion topic or suggest a new post but only the authors may post new topics (this is mostly to avoid spamming and over posting). In time this can develop into an online wiki or discussion board style web page of information and ideas, but at the moment a blog is the most direct, immediate and open way to track the development of the ideas being developed. if you have a suggestion or want to post please send email to

WALK Gallery, LLC is a new public art project whose goal is to fill empty King Street storefronts in Charleston, SC with artwork by local artists. The exhibition begins at the start of this year's Spoleto Festival USA. WALK Gallery exists to improve the quality of life through design and education.
· The project turns closed, vacant spaces into vibrant exhibit spaces.
· Local artists get a high-traffic venue to show their work while downtown businesses increase foot traffic
· Property owners have attention drawn to buildings and spaces that are available for sale or rent.
