Announcement: Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel Brickscape for 2019. After having several spaces fall through, Brickscape, FestivALL Charleston and Charleston Office of Public Art made significant final efforts to find something, but to no avail. Our needs are very specific and not always easy to find. We try to find vacant historical spaces for artists to create in, but also require plumbing and electricity. Many spaces we looked at were either lacking the necessary utilities or currently undergoing renovations that would exceed beyond our start date. We met with a lot of great people who wanted to host us but whose spaces were not going to be ready on time. On the bright side, it is because of this year’s efforts that we should have several options for next year’s program. We’ll make every effort possible to secure next year’s location before the call to artists is announced. We apologize to all those artists who started preparing applications, patiently awaiting a location announcement. We hope those who were planning to apply will reconsider doing so for next year’s program.

At the intersection of art, history and community.


We invite regional and national artists to create immersive and interactive installation art in underutilized historical spaces within downtown Charleston, WV.
