Family Day! for Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light

All members are invited to join the Halsey Institute staff and tour guides June 15 from 11 a.m. – 4  for a fun-filled family-friendly celebration of Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light. The event includes private guided tours, hands-on activities, scavenger hunts, a collaborative art piece, and refreshments. Cry Joy Park is an investigation into the construct of a utopia, inspired by the history of Charleston: a cultural and artistic capital of the American South, and an exemplar of its opulence and beauty. This installation aims to present both an alluring, gorgeous and otherworldly garden, and its darker counterpart. The worlds created by the exhibition are a juxtaposition of utopia and dystopia and are presented via an immersive multisensory experience. This event is open to all levels of membership.
