Charleston. A city of beauty, history, tradition -- and art. Art of all sorts really, from art exhibitions, stand up comedy, concerts to stage performances, the Holy City has it all.

The performing and visual arts season is about to kick into high gear and the Charleston City Paper has tapped into the best of the best in their annual Arts Issue.

Familiar performances and personalities like Chicago, Wicked, Michael Ian Black, Beethoven, A Streetcar Named Desire and many more will make this 2011-2012 season one to remember.

Hop on over to the Charleston City Paper's Arts Issue homepage and take a look for yourself.

Charleston Scene has a Fall Arts Preview as well. The list is jam packed with goodness and has quite a few events that the Charleston City Paper's issue doesn't cover. Check it out.
