Join Us For Downtown ArtWalk Tonight!

Downtown ArtWalk continues its 2011 season tonight.

More and more downtown businesses are joining the effort to revitalize and reawaken downtown. ArtWalk brings people downtown, and once they see what it has to offer, they keep coming back.

ArtWalk is the epitome of why more and more people are going downtown – to be part of a rich culture. Charleston offers food, ideas, expressions, shops and customs not found anywhere.

Art Emporium to Feature Nik Botkin and Paul Corbit Brown

The combination of Nik Botkin’s sculptures and Paul Corbit Brown’s photographs produces an indelible image of how poorly we are caring for the very planet that gives us water and thereby, life. Now we know better, but will we do better?
