March 18, 2011
The first ArtWalk of 2011 is in the books, and it was a lovely night, filled with old friends, new galleries and a sense that the damnable winter is finally behind us.
After being cooped up all winter long it was great to have fantastic weather for Charleston’s Art-filled Walking Tour.
As is tradition with The PopCulteer, we turn over our entire big Friday columnish post to a photo essay. Commentary is at a minimum, but since each picture is worth a thousand words, this week’s PopCulteer is practically a novella.
So put on your comfortable virtual walking shoes, we’re going on an ArtWalk!
