Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art

161 Calhoun Street

What began as the College of Charleston’s on-site gallery has grown into a world-class institution featuring exhibitions by renowned artists like Shepard Fairey and Jasper Johns. The museum is also known for discovering unknown sculptors and painters, as well as hosting international artists for residencies, bringing them into the college community and displaying their work alongside student exhibitions in the two-story gallery space. In addition to regular lectures, screenings, and discussions, the Halsey presents five to seven exhibitions each year. It’s free to the public, and tours are available on request.
