Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibition

Charleston Style & Design, Spring 2018

This year, Piccolo Spoleto’s signature event—the Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibition— will celebrate its 39th year. 

For two weeks, in Marion Square in the heart of Charleston, festivalgoers have the unique opportunity to view the most recent works from 70 of the state’s most renowned artists.

From watercolors, oils and acrylics to photography, each piece has an opportunity to earn the exhibit’s top prize—the Billie Sumner Award, formerly the Mayor’s Choice Award. Renamed this year in her memory, the award honors Sumner, who was an accomplished artist and director of the outdoor art show for nearly 20 years.
