We at the Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction absolutely love our city! Charleston(opens in a new tab) has a unique blend of metropolitan and small-town charm, with a healthy dash of the arts thrown in. While Charleston’s arts scene is great year-round, The Spoleto Festival is the pinnacle of all things artistic in the Holy City. If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Spoleto Festival USA(opens in a new tab) yet, don’t worry! There are still plenty of opportunities for you to experience this international arts Festival between now and Sunday.

Return to the Sea: Saltworks by Motoi Yamamoto This site-specific art installation is on display at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art(opens in a new tab) at the corner of Calhoun and St. Phillip Streets.
