An extension and reincarnation of Charleston's ten-season JAIL BREAK event, Charleston Arts Festival will similarly challenge both artists and attendees to reconsider preconceived ideas of art, creativity and community. Founder and Creative Director Andrew Walker retired the JAIL BREAK series in 2015, but promised its spirit would be rebirthed in a newer, expanded format - what's become Charleston Arts Festival.

Charleston Arts Festival seeks to bridge the gap between artist intention and audience expectation by leveraging creative collaboration across artistic disciplines. Eye-opening, accessible and intentional art will set the scene for a dose of perspective in every genre.
