Going Green : The Porgy Houses

The Porgy Houses

As part of the Porgy & Bess celebration, Spoleto has compiled a group of Charleston homes that have played a significant role in African American history in Charleston. Throughout the festival these 9 residences, embellished by Jonathan Green, seek to resemble the west African style of Porgy and Bess' set while highlighting the locations contribution to the history of the city.
