This week, local photographer Stephanie Stein released her Nude in Nature 2020 Calendar. The calendar can be purchased through her website for $25.

You may recognize Stein as one of the four photographers City Paper recently featured in our cover story, "Fresh Look." Stein says that she talks with her models before every photoshoot, "I ask them about their stories, their traumas, so we can work through it together." This conversation leads to real, raw photos.

The Nude in Nature calendar features 12 8.5" x 11" images, and Stein is featured in three of them.

The best part, she notes, is that you have 12 prints to keep after the year is over.

Drink, create, and learn at the next Cultivate SciArt happy hour at Palmetto Brewing Co.

Beer makes us smarter

Posted by Lilli Serral on Thu, Oct 17, 2019 at 1:23 PM

On Tues. Oct. 22 from 6-8 p.m., head to a SciArt (science and art, natch) happy hour at Palmetto Brewing. Hosted by Cultivate, an organization dedicated to making knowledge and creativity accessible to everyone, this happy hour features beer, food, knowledge, and art.
Tickets are free for students and just $15 for everyone else.

As you could guess, the SciArt Happy Hour is divided into two sections: science and art. The science portion of the event will be led by Jared Bramblett as he answers the question "Can Charleston engineer our way out of flooding?" and shares his striking photography to illustrate the city's flooding threat.

Then, artist Marielena Martinez will lead a DIY kinetic mobile workshop, where you can learn about and build your own mobile to take home, all while sipping on discounted pints and enjoying light bites.

Learn more about Cultivate and their mission online.

On Sat. Oct. 26, Unlocking Potential students are teaming up with D.R.I.V.E.N. LLC and activist Anastatia Ketchen to perform "I Heard Chicago Crying: Outcry" (IHCC) at Burke High School. 

Unlocking Potential is an organization aimed at improving and strengthening the community through education, creative arts, and life skills and team building activities.

Based on Ketchen's book of the same name, the production addresses the issues of hate crimes and gun violence. The performance demonstrates how social and community problems like gentrification, poverty, and the school to prison pipeline contribute to violent acts in inner city neighborhoods. 

The goal of the production is to raise awareness of the increasing discriminatory violence in the country and reinstate the value of life.

Doors open at 5 p.m., and the show starts at 6 p.m. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased on, or by calling (843) 834-7839. A copy of the book "I heard Chicago Crying: Outcry" will be included with purchase.

Mind boggling artwork

  • La Catrina hands you a brew
To celebrate Día de Los Muertos, Modelo has created a new augmented reality experience located at 516 King St. (on the corner of Reid and King streets).

To see the mural live and in action, head to the sight, visit, and aim any smartphone at the mural to unlock the 3-D, eye-catching design. No app is required, and you'll want to crank the volume to get the full experience.

The mural showcases three-dimensional marigolds with fluttering pedals, an ofrenda, illuminated candles, and an interactive La Catrina whose arm transforms into a skeleton as she flicks off the cap of a Modelo Especial bottle and hands it to the viewer.

Be sure to stop by the mural now through Nov. 3.
