We admit it. We’ve been a bit preoccupied with Charleston Fashion Week. It’s hard not to be swept up by the excitement; fashion designers, haute couture clothes, models, photographers, the catwalk…everyone feels a bit of a star. But we realize this is not everyone’s bag, so to speak.
Here are our picks for cool things happening in Charleston’s art scene for everyone NOT wrapped up in Fashion Week.
