Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston is an awesome art venue and gallery that has great displays that run for a limited time. It is always cool to walk through a new display and installation when it is ready and open for the first time. Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art never disappoints as they come through with some art that is worthwhile and challenges you. The Institute is well run and does a good job of bringing art and culture to Charleston.
Great place to catch Pokemon from the Green Energy Gym, especially on a hot day. Enter the gym, walk to the entrance and go inside the lobby and still be connected. Multi-phone charging station up the ramp. Tip: There's great art exhibits too!!
