South Carolina Botanical Garden
From a humble beginning as a camellia collection in the 1950s, the South Carolina Botanical Garden has blossomed into a 295-acre sanctuary for diversity by re-engaging people in the living world. We strive to serve as an interdisciplinary resource focusing on teaching, research, and outreach that advances awareness and understanding of plants, animals, minerals, and our culture. The gardens exist for enjoyment and education and are available and accessible to all people. Our grounds are open and free-of-charge 365 days a year from sunrise to sunset.
Center for Visual Arts at Clemson University
"Making visible the creative process." The Center for Visual Arts (CVA) at Clemson University serves as a place where students, visitors and scholars explore contemporary perspectives in art and culture through research, outreach programming and studio practice. The mission of the Center is to engage and render visible the creative process. The CVA is a dynamic intellectual and physical environment where art is created, exhibited and interpreted. It educates through academic research and practice with art at its core, drawing upon varied disciplines to examine critically cultural issues and artistic concerns. Please Join Us! The Friends of the Center for Visual Arts is an active organization of loyal patrons who share a love and appreciation of the arts. Our Friends give generously of their time, talent and financial support in order to strengthen the arts for the surrounding community and Clemson University.
