LOOKING TO SEE provides structured guided tours and educational outreach to the general public, with a focus on K-12 schools, after-school programs, and community organizations. The Halsey is committed to increasing community engagement by providing greater access to contemporary art, and the tours are open to all interested groups and schools FREE of charge. The Halsey also offers travel subsidies, the Bus on Us initiative, to schools/groups that may have barriers for participation.

For Spring 2022, we have continued our return to in-person tours, and we continue to offer virtual tour options and educational packets for our current and recent past exhibitions. Explore our educational packets here or reach out to us at HalseyTours@cofc.edu or call (843) 953-5659. All groups and classes planning a trip to our galleries for either in-person or self-guided tours MUST complete the Tour Reservation Request form.

Students who attend a field trip to an art museum demonstrate improved critical thinking skills, historical empathy, and tolerance. (Education Next, "The Educational Value of Field Trips," 2014)

The Looking to See program would not be possible without the talent and hard work of our dedicated tour guides. Thank you, Sandra Brett, Gail Onken, Kay Smith, Karen Thompson, and Jan Welborn! We are currently taking applications for new tour guides.

PROGRAMS/RESOURCES

ARTIST LECTURES accompany each exhibition the Halsey Institute originates. When possible, the lectures take place within the exhibition in the form of a gallery walk-through with the artist and curator. Check out our EVENTS page for all the upcoming artist lectures and additional exhibition programming.
FILM SCREENINGS are scheduled throughout the year and are free and open to the public. We show independent films, and the subject matter varies greatly, but the filmmaker is often in attendance for Q & A and discussion. Check our FILM page for information on upcoming films.
BIBLIOTECA is the Halsey Institute reference library that is open to the public for browsing. Biblioteca contains exhibition catalogues, art history books, artist monographs, rare books and books on uncommon topics. This is a non-lending library that offers a cornucopia of inspiration for those interested in visual culture.

EDUCATIONAL BROCHURES are often created to accompany our exhibitions to assist visitors in their understanding and appreciation of the artist's works on view. We've made these guides available online so you can revisit all your favorite past exhibitions and continue to learn about our shows.
