2015 South Carolina Arts Gala

The South Carolina Arts Foundation celebrates the state’s arts community with celebrity artists, an art sale, food and more, at the 2015 South Carolina Arts Gala, May 13 at 701 Whaley in Columbia. This annual fundraiser supports the arts education and arts development programs of the South Carolina Arts Commission. The gala will include an art sale featuring a wide range of original one-of-a-kind artworks by South Carolina artists, including functional and non-functional craft, paintings and sculpture, to provide many choices for both seasoned and beginning collectors. Tickets are $75 per person.

Prior to the gala, this year’s South Carolina Arts Awards recipients (Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Governor’s Awards for the Arts, the Jean Laney Harris Folk Heritage Awards, and the McNair Award) will be honored during a special concert beginning at 6:15 p.m. at Southside Baptist Church (702 Whaley, across the street from the gala). The concert is open to the public.
