Let's celebrate student excellence TODAY at the College of Charleston expo highlighting research, scholarship, creative inquiry and community service!

Art & Architectural History, College of Charleston student Gabriella Rowsam’s research found that the number of historic structures the College has preserved on campus doesn’t come close to how many it has demolished over the years—a surprising discovery considering our beautiful Campus is known for its housing and offices tucked away in historic buildings.

Read about the demolished buildings and the people who occupied them in the College Today article by Alicia Lutz.

CPAD student Solomon McKenzie worked with Historic Preservation & Community Planning at College of Charleston Professor Grant Gilmore to complete a rendering of the 1904 Long Point Elementary School, a structure which is in dire need of restoration. A fundraising concert, headlining Charlton P. Singleton, will help attain the goal of opening the school in Mt. Pleasant's Snowden Settlement Community so that all students in the Charleston County School District may tour it during their early education. The experience will help to tell the story of challenges faced by African Americans from Reconstruction onwards in obtaining even a basic education.

Join us on March 26th in supporting this preservation effort!

Barry Stiefel, associate professor of historic preservation and community planning at the College, revealed in a 2012 American Jewish Archives Journal article that Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim (KKBE) – the first Reform synagogue in the nation – is among the many buildings in Charleston built by the unpaid labor of enslaved Africans.

Read more about this discovery and how his preservation research projects promote reconciliation and justice for African Americans and others who have endured slavery and other great acts of oppression.

Architectural History Professor Receives SESAH Best Book of the Year Award

“In this prodigious study of architecture, literature and dreams, Nathaniel Walker takes his readers on a marvel-filled tour of Victorian visions of suburban Utopia and shows that the line dividing ‘real’ architecture and fantasy is thin indeed,” the 2021 SESAH Publication Awards Committee says. “Walker reviews a plethora of strange, wonderful and terrifying texts, images and buildings that represent the dreams of Utopian visionaries.”

Architectural History Professor Receives SESAH Best Book of the Year Award At the Southeast Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians (SESAH) annual conference earlier this month, Nathaniel Robert Walker, associate professor of architectural history, received the Best Book of the Year Award for his book, Victorian Visions of Suburban Utopia, Abandoning Babylon, be...

Our Creative Conversations talk series returns this week! 🗨️

On Wednesday 28th April, 7pm, Dr Rebekah Compton wil be in conversation with Dr Claudia Tobin on depictions of Venus and 'verdant virtues'.

Venus is a goddess of nature, who resides in green landscapes responsive to her powers over spring and regeneration. This talk explores the challenges for 15th century artists of using green pigments, and will include a demonstration of how these copper based pigments transform into paint.

Dear Seniors,

On behalf of the Department of Art and Architectural History and the Program in Historic Preservation and Community Planning we very enthusiastically invite you to join us Friday afternoon at 4 pm to celebrate you with a toast (unfortunately, under the circumstances, that means BYOB). We are very sad we can't do this in person, but we can't let you "go" without a celebration. If you feel like wearing your white dresses and white tuxes (probably not...) please do so, but at least let us join together. Wear whatever you want, as long as you wear something.

Remember, 4 pm, EST on Friday May 8.

See you then!

An internship at the Halsey Institute is an invaluable opportunity for students (and recent graduates) at any level to gain experience in a professional gallery setting. Our interns become involved with all aspects of the Halsey Institute, starting with the understanding of our mission, past programming, future programming, membership, and daily responsibilities of running a nonprofit organization. Much of our interns’ time is spent on exhibition research, writing, installation, and promotion. Although internships are tailored to fit the interests and skills of each person, participants are deemed generally useful, meaning they have the opportunity to assist with anything related to Halsey Institute programming.

Many former interns have since landed jobs working for galleries and museums nationwide, including the High Museum of Art, the International Center of Photography in New York, Pace Gallery New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, among many others.

The Fall 2019 internship will run August 26 through December 6. Interested applicants for Fall 2019 are encouraged to send a current résumé and cover letter to the attention of Lizz Biswell, Director of Public Affairs at [email protected], by Friday, July 19, 2019.
