** Please note: This event has been cancelled in response to the COVID-19 virus concerns for our region.
The acclaimed Kiawah Art & House Tour is Arts, etc.’s major fundraiser. Five fabulous Kiawah Island homes are graciously offered by their owners, and each home displays unique architecture, features, views, and art collections. This is an event you won’t want to miss!
Proceeds from the Kiawah Island Art & House Tour directly fund programs chosen for grants from Arts, etc. The grants bring visual, performing, and literary arts experiences to schools and children of Johns Island and Wadmalaw Island.
Arts, etc. is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization of Kiawah and Cassique women. Our purpose is to raise funds, through donations and events, to support the arts in our greater community and to provide educational and social opportunities for our membership. The distribution of funds will be at the discretion of the organization.
** Due to the College of Charleston’s plans to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we are cancelling Slow Art Day 2020.
Join the Halsey Institute staff and tour guides for Slow Art Day, the international celebration of slow looking, and participate in guided in-depth conversations about a handful of the artworks in Young Contemporaries 2020.
Slow Art Day was started in order to invite novices – and experts – to experience the power of looking at art slowly.
It’s a very simple event. Visit your local museum (or gallery, public artwork, etc.) and view a small number of works of art for 5 to 10 minutes each. Then everyone meets to discuss their experience. And all this happens the same day around the world.
The result? Participants say they get “inspired, not tired” and plan to return to that museum or gallery again and again (our not-so-secret agenda is to help more people experience the excitement of art and become regular patrons of their local museums).
** Due to the College of Charleston’s plans to mitigate COVID-19, we are postponing Halsey Talks: Art & Artificial Intelligence until fall 2020.
Nowadays, it’s common to hear forecasts of robots replacing human labor. As they’ve already done on assembly lines for cars and other products, robots may soon take over other jobs, like driving trucks, making omelettes, and acting as personal assistants. But what about art? Will robots replace the role of the artist?
As artists have been exploring the realm and limitations of artificial intelligence for decades, we will use examples to investigate how artificial intelligence functions within art.
Halsey Talks are an ongoing series of roundtable discussions on intriguing concepts in art. While they may take advantage of exhibitions on view at the Halsey Institute, they are open-ended in nature. As a platform for a deeper understanding and discussion of fascinating ideas in art, Halsey Talks are open to all.
