Charleston, SC has seen a real estate and economic boom recently, which has left many small businesses behind. Local artists will develop a mobile app that will work in concert with a series of community art events to create an even more robust economy for both sole proprietors and small businesses.

This is ArtPlace’s first investment in the state of South Carolina.
