Charleston Self-Portrait Project (Facebook)

Starting tomorrow, all members of the Charleston community, from children to seniors, are invited to participate in a new community art project taking place throughout the city. The Charleston Self-Portrait Project's first public event begins Wednesday in the College of Charleston’s Barnet Courtyard.

At these free-to-attend events, participants are invited to create a self-portrait that they can either keep or donate to the project for future viewing by the community. The project aims to use these self-made images to create a “portrait of Charleston” that will be featured in a public exhibition in March of this year.

Here's the public event schedule:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 14 from 11 am - 2 pm: CofC's Barnet Courtyard
  • Wednesday, Jan. 28 from 11 am - 2 pm: CofC's Cistern Yard
  • Sunday, Feb. 1 from 1 pm - 4 pm: Blue Bicycle Books
  • Friday, Feb. 13 from 4 pm - 7 pm: Children's Museum of the Lowcountry
  • Tuesday, Feb. 17 from 3 pm - 6 pm: Redux Contemporary Art Center
