With Cry Joy Park: Gardens of Dark and Light, Jennifer Wen Ma explores the idea of utopia—how, for whom, and by whom they are constructed. As many artists before her have shown, using art to probe and attempt to create utopic conditions proves challenging and even paradoxical.

What is a utopia? Can art be utopian in nature? Does art make the world a better place, and if so, does that make art utopian? Join us as we discuss these questions and more at Halsey Talks.

The instant her phone rang, Reverend Sharon Risher sensed something was horribly wrong. Something had happened at Emanuel AME Church, the church of her youth in Charleston, and she knew her mother was likely at Bible study in the church. Even before she heard the news, her chaplain’s instinct told her the awful truth: her mother was dead, along with two cousins. What Risher couldn’t imagine was that they had been murdered by a white supremacist. Plunged into the depths of mourning, anger and shock, she could have wallowed in the pain. Instead, she chose the path of forgiveness and hope – eventually forgiving the convicted killer for his crime. “For Such a Time as This: Hope and Forgiveness after the Charleston Massacre” is Risher’s powerful memoir of faith, family and loss. Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event.

All members are invited to join the Halsey Institute staff and tour guides for a fun-filled family-friendly celebration of Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light. Enjoy private guided tours, hands-on activities, scavenger hunts, a collaborative art piece, and refreshments!

As a part of Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light, Jennifer Wen Ma has conceived of a series of Luncheons in the Garden in which the public will be invited to be a part of conversations dealing with themes of the exhibition.

Bring a bag lunch and break bread with other members of the community in the Halsey Institute galleries. Each Luncheon in the Garden will also feature a collaborative performance by musician, dancer, or poet relating to the theme. For this Luncheon, the artist will be discussing land issues facing the Lowcountry.

Without land, we would not have trees, gardens, or vegetation of any sort, the basis of a paradise. Everything under the sun has a right to live and to lay its head on the earth to rest, be it an ant, elephant or human. But the politics of land has put the world in a critical state; Charleston’s local issues are reflections of the global condition. Habitat loss, homelessness, and gentrification have made land ownership/stewardship not just a human rights problem, but also an animal rights and environmental crisis.

Tickets available at https://www.WaterLanternFestival.com

 

Come experience the Water Lantern Festival with your friends and family as the water lanterns reflect messages of love, hope, and happiness upon the water. Don’t miss this amazing event.

We are bringing you fireworks! Headliner Coco Fresh is going to light up this stage. You don’t want to miss this hilarious little fireball. Guaranteed laughter. Joining Coco is New York’s Clint Nohr, a former Charleston resident who’s comedy career led him to the big Apple and Myrtle Beach’s Scott Schacher rounds out the lineup.

Coco Fresh is a New Jack Female on the comedy scene from Charlotte, NC. A Comedy Zone Comedy School Alumni, Former radio personality of Club Vibrations Saturday Night Live Broadcast on Charlotte’s Old School 105.3FM, and entertainment reporter of The Hollywood Scoreboard ESPN980 The Morning Man Cave, Currently she is appearing on season 2 of TruTVs Laff Mobbs Laff Tracks, touring around the country, and The Charlotte Comedy Zones official host of Fight Night. This little lady’s stories of her childhood nightmares to strip club memoirs will tickle your funny bone enough to have completed an ab exercise. She is no stranger to television and has appeared as a dancer on BET’s Born to Dance, 106 and Park, MTV’s The Wade Robson Project, and CMT’s The Ultimate Coyote. She is also a former dancer for the WNBA and NBA.

Using his young appearance to his advantage, Clint Nohr immediately establishes a rapport with the audience. He’s charming and adorable and the funny thing is, he ACTUALLY believes this. Truth is, he combines sharp writing with a likable approach to any topic (nothing off limits). It’s a mixed bag of observational humor coming from a warped and twisted, yet somehow always relatable point of view. His conversational delivery comes across almost over-confident and self deprecating all at once, giving him the ability to connect with ANY crowd.

Your host, Keith Dee, is a regular feature for the Comedy Zone World Wide, and recently featured for Jamie Kennedy, and the Legendary Emo Phillips. He’s been a performer in the Charleston Comedy Festival and The North Carolina Comedy Festival.
