Beat the heat with some cool art at Downtown ArtWalk this Thursday.
ArtWalk, a Charleston Area Alliance program sponsored by Masters Law Firm, is a monthly event that draws hundreds of residents and visitors to downtown Charleston for a festive evening of culture and commerce. The purpose of ArtWalk is to help revitalize downtown and to promote economic development through the arts.
