Kulture Klash 6 Review

An appropriate amount of time has passed for Sir Geoffrey to share his review on Kulture Klash 6.  Here it is…  Overall, I would define the experience (and trust me, it was an experience being my first time) as pretty darn cool with a touch of awesomeness.  What a unique event!  I highly recommend you attend at least once.  The event has changed venues at the Navy Yard over the years but this year it returned to its roots at our urban clubhouse aka 10 Storehouse Row.

First, I loved all the food and drink options.  As a frequent diner of Anna Bells restaurant, I was pleased to see them open their doors at 10 Storehouse Row for the event and it appeared from the crowd inside, everyone else was pleased also.  Taco Boy had their food truck parked on Noisette Blvd and who doesn’t love them some Taco Boy?  Sweeteeth was their to provide some good snack and desert options or you could head over to the good folks serving up New Belgium Brewery beers or the assorted wine list from Social Wine Bar.  Vitamin Water and Red Bull was readily available if nonalcoholic drinks were what you needed.

The main draw has to be all the great art displayed.  More than 50 local and regional artists were on display.  The art was quite diverse and it was difficult for me to pick out a favorite.  Although I do not run in the arts circles here in Charleston, I feel my Introduction to Art Appreciation course I took in undergrad back in 1999 properly prepared me to…appreciate what was there 😉  During the night there was impromptu art going on everywhere.  Performance art could happen at anytime and the spontaneous breakdancing is always a crowd pleaser.  The silent disco pleasantly surprised me and while I was enjoying just people watching at first, New Belgium Brewery helped me to become one with the silent disco later in the night.    As the evening progressed, the arts exhibition vibe gave way to a party scene that was pulling you in different directions past the midnight hour.  All the events, artists, performances and the like were too much to list but check out the reviews and links at the Digitel site to see some great pics, videos and other…more professional reviews.  Good times and two thumbs up!   See you at Kulture Klash 7!

Save Noisette Creek Mural Ready for it New Home


From the Michaux Conservancy:

“This highly collaborative mural project combines art, environmental education and community service to visually encourage public interest in protecting natural resources in general, and Noisette Creek in particular.  Noisette Creek runs through a 1,400-acre urban watershed that begins at Rivers Ave and flows east into the Cooper River at Riverfront Park.

The Save Noisette Creek mural project was set in motion by an AmeriCorps*VISTA member serving with the Michaux Conservancy.  It was designed and painted by Charleston County School of the Arts students.  The Ashley Cooper Stormwater Education consortium and the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department provided the funding.  The mural was completed October 11, 2010.”
