Art On The Beach

Nov 8, 2020 | Sullivans Island, SC

2020 Event Update | Traditionally, Art on the Beach is a dynamic tour of homes on Sullivan’s Island, held annually on the second Sunday in November. Art on the Beach has been reimagined this year to offer our patrons a virtual event experience. Tune into our live event series on Instagram @artonthebeachchs at 7pm on September 16, 2020 for our second, micro-episode!

About Art on the Beach

In the past, Art on the Beach patrons would explore popup art galleries in private residences around Sullivan’s Island, tasting sweet and savory treats from local chefs along the tour. It was a wonderful collaboration of homeowners, artists, craftsmen, chefs, and the local community. Since it is difficult to gather in-person at the moment, we have developed a series of virtual micro-events to engage past and future patrons and participants. Virtual Art on the Beach will commemorate the 21st Anniversary of Art on the Beach. Enjoy this year’s event experience from the comfort and safety of your home. The virtual event on Instagram will include virtual home tours of Sullivan’s Island residences, behind the scenes looks at participating artists’ studios, interaction with local chefs, musical performances, as well as fundraising for Charleston Pro Bono Legal Services. Charleston Pro Bono Legal Services is a non-profit organization that provides free civil legal services to hundreds of low-income individuals and families in our community each year.
