Investing in the legacy of our community

Renewing the artistic and cultural promise of Charleston.

The community of Charleston has embarked on building a new performance hall and civic center befitting of our city's beauty, its eclectic sophistication, its expectations in the arena of the arts, and its legacy on the stage of great American cities.

This is the most exciting and compelling cultural and architectural project our city has undertaken in decades - a performance hall where creativity will be nurtured and a building where people will come together in the sharing of endeavors, ideas, and dreams.

Construction of the new Gaillard Center is well under way. A product of a unique and beneficial public-private cooperation, the new Gaillard will be a proud cornerstone in our lives as arts lovers and citizens, benefitting Charleston in the arena of the arts, education, and the economy.

It is our time to reinvest in the arts, in the legacy of our community, and in the imagination of our children. Just imagine becoming part of it.

Why A New Gaillard Center?

As vivid and vital as all that happens within it.

Our new building is of the Lowcountry and for the Lowcountry, a balance of local and international, traditional and modern, designed to serve the needs of our contemporary city.
