As summer draws to a close (we’re kidding, it’s still hot), we’ve got plenty of virtual and in-person, socially distanced events to check out. Here’s the rundown.
Give Back to the Gibbes
The Gibbes Museum of Art’s auxiliary group, Society 1858, hosts a virtual art auction, Give Back to the Gibbes Aug. 26-28, with proceeds providing critical operating support to the Gibbes. The auction features works by over 60 artists, including a number of past 1858 Prize winners like Leo Twiggs and Alicia Henry. The prices of the original works range widely, from $200-$20K. Proceeds from the auction help provide funding for exhibitions and programming at the museum.
Creative Flow at Redux
Head over to Redux Contemporary Art Center to join a weekly Vinyasa yoga class taught by local instructor Lauren Skinner. There are a limited number of spaces due to social distancing guidelines, so be sure to sign up in advance.
Social Distance Learning
This Friday join cultural interpreter Joseph McGill as he broadcasts on Facebook Live from the Slave Dwelling Project’s Facebook page. Enjoy a 5 p.m. walking tour of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens followed by a 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Zoom conversation about slavery’s legacy on Charleston and this nation. Send Zoom request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Head to Uptown Social on Sundays for Bodega Brunch featuring tunes from DJ Soto, drink specials and of course your favorite bodega-inspired bites.
Biergarten’s Back to Brunch
Catch the final Sunday show from always popular local cover band The Midnight City, playing at Bay Street Biergarten this weekend. Get your brunch on while jamming to Midnight City’s dope covers (and some originals) from 12-3 p.m.
Head to the Charleston Pour House every Sunday for a yoga class taught by local instructor Kate Counts. The all-levels, hour-long class kicks off at 4:30 p.m. Stick around for a performance from the Motown Throwdown. Be sure to bring your own mat.
