Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art (HICA) is located in the heart of the University section of Downtown Charleston, SC and is linked with the University of Charleston's School of Art.

The Gallery is opened Mon-Sat 11-4, Thurs 11-7 and is free to visit. Donations are appreciated.

I really loved this gallery space. You walk into the front of the building from Calhoun St and immediately find yourself in the wide spacious well lit hallway that also works as a gallery space for student artwork. To your left is the entrance into HICA. HICA is consists of two large rooms, a small reading room/library and another small cozy gallery space tucked in the back. The artwork was properly lit and the receptionist was informative of the artwork on display.

When you are finished looking at the work inside the gallery you can then checkout the current batch of student artwork on display in the hallway running the length of the building.

When I visited the two larger rooms they were both dedicated to the work of the artist Lesley Dill, you can check her work in the photographs posted and my accompanying blog post, and the small gallery room served as a video viewing room with a documentary that explained Dill's work and work method on loop.
