Event Details

The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston hosts artist Motoi Yamamoto during a two-week residency as he creates a unique collection of  installations of art created solely from salt that is specific to Charleston and will be on display during Spoleto. Yamamoto is an internationally renowned Japanese artist who is known for working with salt in large- scale installations. A characteristic of his art is that he takes apart his work after its exhibit, collects the salt, and returns it to the sea. The Halsey invites the public to watch the artist create his installations during his residency between May 14th and 24th, and to enjoy an opening reception with hors'd'ouvres, refreshments, and japanese drumming on Thursday, May 24th from 5 to 7 pm, and join in a public dismantling of his work on July 7th at 4pm. The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Junior Center for the Arts, 161 Calhoun St, 1st floor. Monday-Saturday, 11am-4pm. Free. (843)953-4422, www.halsey.cofc.edu
