Lowcountry Harley Davidson – Ladies Night Out: The wonderful women at Lowcountry Harley Davidson invited all the ladies of Charleston into their store for a night of motorcycle education and fun. A table full of treats and delicious wines were available for all. Several stations were set up to offer quick hands-on tutorials on motorcycle maintenance. Every 7 minutes we were directed to a new area of the shop to learn more about motorcycles. One “workshop” taught the group the proper method for picking up a fallen bike; such fun! The evening concluded with awesome giveaways. We managed to snag a couple of prizes. We're looking forward to the next Lowcountry Harley Davidson garage party.
 

Shepard Fairey: You have seen the Obey giant all over the Holy City. The acclaimed artist returned to the place where it all started to display his most recent work, The Insistent Image. Shepard Fairey has garnered worldwide recognition for his graphic depiction of “Andre the Giant” and created a movement centered on social change. The Halsey Art Institute currently houses the exhibit; which is open and free to the public. Each piece is moving and controversial. Fairey uses bold colors and icon symbols to shed light on the growing social and economic problems of our time; particularity over consumption by the elite and poverty among the lower class. The installation is worth seeing and the emotional impact of the art will linger with you for days.
 

Secret Identity Party at King Dusko: Charleston music and art lovers ventured to King Dusko for a night of entertainment. Artist Michal Weintroub recently installed his last art collection, Instrumenthead, at the gallery located on King Street. The pieces of art portray a wide array of musician with their instrument of choice placed directly over their faces. The pieces were stirring and impactful. This backdrop created the perfect environment for a party. Guests were encouraged to wear masks that represented their secret identity or alter ego. This created a whimsical and light atmosphere. The mixture of electric and techno music from area musicians kept all attendees dancing all night. Note to self: create alter ego.
