AWAKENING // SATURDAY JULY 13, 2013 // 1600 MEETING
Awakening is a one-day, one-time art and performance event that is being held in order to breathe life into the newest creative hub, 1600 Meeting. Formerly an Exxon office, this 86 year old building is currently being transformed into an arts-driven community. The property will be home to office space, art + design studios, a non-profit or two, a community resource center, local food and drink, and more importantly Charleston’s creative community. By bringing creative entrepreneurs together, 1600 Meeting hopes to be the center of creative inspiration and collaboration. Sounds cool, right?
Awakening will feature a wide range of art-forms with over 20 participants (listed below), including Park Circle’s Patch Whisky. You will see all types of artforms, including dance, photography, sculpture and more. Each Artist will have a specific hallway or room that will be open to their own unique creative interpretation. This free event is on Saturday, July 13, 2013 from 10am to 6pm at 1600 Meeting St.
Participants involved in the event:
Margaret Crane, The Art Bus Project
Laura Gaffke + Tina Hirsig
Kevan Hoertdoerfer + VASSILIKI FALKEHAG
HOLY CITY RAVEL ROUSERS
