April Showers Art Party

The South Carolina Arts Foundation presents the April Showers Art Party, kicking off the South Carolina Arts Commission‘s 50th Anniversary Celebration, April 5th at 7 p.m., in the Grand Hall at 701 Whaley in Columbia. For 50 years, the Arts Commission has served as an umbrella for the development of the arts in South Carolina. April Showers will feature an art sale of umbrella-themed works by approximately 30 arts professionals, a cocktail buffet and open bar, and a dance party with the Finesse Band. Ann Brodie’s Carolina Ballet will open the event with a Singin’ in the Rain performance, and installed throughout the ceiling will be umbrellas embellished by students from schools benefitted by the Arts in Basic Curriculum Project.
