End of the Year Giving Campaign

Sunday, November 1, 2020

Support contemporary art in Charleston through a gift to the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art!

Your financial support helps us serve the community by bringing world-class exhibitions and innovative programs for all ages. The Halsey Institute is a platform for experimentation for artists from around the world. Together with our members and supporters, we have built an important community resource providing barrier-free access to adventurous contemporary art for everyone.

With your help, we can do MORE for our community. We are inviting YOU, our loyal fans, to show your love for the Halsey Institute through our end of year giving campaign. Your donation helps keep admission free and provides crucial support for our exhibitions, educational offerings, and community programming.

Donate here any time before December 31st to not only support the Halsey Institute’s mission, but also take advantage of some fun thank you gifts for different levels of giving!

2020 has been anything but ordinary for everyone! Support takes many forms and every bit helps. Other ways to show your love for the Halsey Institute include engaging with our virtual programs, inviting a friend to our next exhibition, joining or renewing your membership, gifting memberships to friends and family, or purchasing items from our online shop.


$0-20 – Low Cost Love!
Give at any amount for a social media shout out and virtual high five from our staff, interns, volunteers, and advisory board. That’s quite a few high fives! Totally worth the investment.

$21 – Let’s Make it Public!
Send in a 21-second video of why you love the Halsey Institute and/or what you’re looking forward to the most in 2021. We’ll add all videos to our outdoor Microcinema for a surprise spot of positivity for anyone that passes by the galleries. Feel free to come by to take a selfie while you’re on the big screen! Videos will be on view mid-December to mid-January.

$50 – Logo Tote and a Love Note!
In addition to warm fuzzy feelings of doing good in your community, we’ll send you one of our new Halsey Institute logo tote bags filled with heartfelt thanks. Please note, the actual extent of our gratitude will not fit into a tote bag.

$75 – Knowledge from the Future!
You’ll be invited to an online event with Halsey Institute curators Bryan Granger and Katie Hirsch. They’ll share the super exciting exhibitions we’ve got planned for the next two years. Get ready for some serious insider info then stick around for a few years to watch how a thought becomes a thing.

$150 – Perfectly Paired Publications!
Our Curatorial Associate Kaylee Lass has selected sets of Halsey Institute publications that share a thematic connection. One to keep and one to gift … or two to keep! Double the art, double the knowledge, double the perks. Click here to see the pairings!

$300 – ‘Tis Better to Give!
We know you love us. Now, share that passion with someone else! Give the gift of adventurous contemporary art with a Futurist level membership for your neighbors, your kid’s over-stressed teacher, or that hard-to-buy-for sibling. The membership is a $125 value y’all!

$500 – Own a Piece of the New South!
We have a very limited supply of prints by four of the photographers from our recent landmark exhibition, Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South. You can be one of the lucky folks that gets to own a piece of the exhibition. Click here to see the available prints. 

$1,000 – Motoi Yamamoto Momento!
We have a very limited supply of prints by Motoi Yamamoto, easily one of our community’s most favorite exhibitions in recent years. The print, Floating Garden, 2012, is part of the edition for a print included in his 2012 exhibition Return to the Sea: Saltworks by Motoi Yamamoto. Click here to see images of the print. 

$5,000 – Safer World Special Tour!
When it’s safe to hang out with strangers indoors again (don’t let us down, 2021), you and 5 of your friends can schedule a mutually agreeable time with Halsey Institute curators Bryan Granger and Katie Hirsch for a private guided exhibition tour with complimentary beverages.
