Entropy Arts & American College of Building Arts are proud to present JAIL BREAK 2 on Saturday, November 12th from noon-11pm at the Old City Jail at 21 Magazine St in downtown Charleston. An all encompassing arts festival established to provide an outlet for local artists to present their work, JAIL BREAK 2 will be held at one of the most unique venues in downtown Charleston where the jail will be converted into a gallery, displaying works by local visual artists and students from the ACBA as well as music and dance instillations from Dancefx Charleston and Annex Dance Company. Additionally, interactive festivities such as live painting, arts and crafts, demonstrations of various building arts by ACBA students and artisan booths will be outside in the main yard of the former jail.

“I started Entropy Arts to focus on presenting innovative performing arts events that showcase collaboration between artists of different mediums including music, dance, visual art, writing, filmmaking and more,” stated festival organizer Andrew Walker. “It was a natural step to host an arts festival where diverse artists and audiences could come together to celebrate the arts.
