Halsey Institute: Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light

Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light is now on display at the Halsey Institute and we encourage you to visit the gallery this summer.

The exhibition is an investigation into the construction of a utopia, inspired by the history of Charleston, South Carolina: a cultural and artistic capital of the American South, and an exemplar of its opulence and beauty. The installation presents both an alluring, gorgeous and otherworldly garden, and its darker counterpart, via an immersive multisensory experience that utilizes various forms of communication to convey its message.

Information on the exhibition is available here. Information on other Halsey events, including programming related to this exhibition, is available here.

Hours: Monday – Saturday, 11AM – 4PM, Open until 7PM on Thursdays, Closed on Sundays

USCSOMG Information Session
Thursday, April 25th, 6pm
SSMB, Room 129

If you plan to apply to medical school, you will want to attend this information session with the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville. Admissions Coordinator Lucy Conaway will be on campus to talk about this medical school that has become very popular with our pre-med students over the past few years. The first 6 weeks of their curriculum is EMT training because they want their medical students to be able to lay hands on patients from the time they begin. The medical school is located on the grounds of the Greenville Hospital System, which has an excellent reputation in the healthcare community. They pride themselves on being patient-focused. Over the past few years they have made generous scholarship awards to students who have been accepted from the College of Charleston.
