Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site

Archaeology, Culture, History, Military, Park, Zoo

Charles Towne Landing SHS has undergone a visionary and physical redevelopment over the last 10 years. The physical redevelopment was highlighted in 2006 by the grand opening of a brand new exhibit hall and visitor center that tells the story of the first 10 years of the settlement of Charles Towne. As the first site of the original settlement of Charles Towne (Charleston), the site is an archaeological museum as well, with continuous excavations that slowly uncover clues to the first settlement's inhabitants. Animals that roamed Carolina at the time of English settlement are highlighted in the Animal Forest zoo. A new otter habitat opened to the public in April 2011.

Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art
Charleston, South Carolina

Art, Culture, University

We originate between five and seven exhibitions per year, many of which travel nationally, and host a year-round schedule of lectures, panels, symposia, screenings, discussions, and special events. We also produce video documentaries about the artists and exhibitions that we originate. These videos provide keys to understanding the artist’s creative process and are permanently archived on our comprehensive website. We also produce award-winning publications for many of our exhibitions. These catalogues feature thoughtful commissioned essays that provide a meaningful context for the exhibitions and offer a permanent record of the artist’s project with the Halsey Institute.

Gibbes Museum of Art
Charleston, South Carolina

Art

The Gibbes Museum of Art maintains approximately 10,000 objects that directly support its mission to "collect, conserve, and interpret an American fine arts collection with a Charleston perspective." This includes objects that reflect the distinct patronage of this region. The strength of the collection lies in its 18th, 19th and early 20th century paintings, works on paper (prints, drawings, watercolors, photographs), miniature portraits, and sculpture. The objects in each medium reinforce the history of Charleston as an important colonial and antebellum city, and today as a tourist destination.
