Horowitz honored for dedication to Upstate arts, culture

Town Carolina Charitable Giving Award goes to SCAC commissioner

The South Carolina Arts Commission is excited to offer its congratulations to Henry Horowitz of Greenville for earning a prestigious Upstate award.

Horowitz, it was announced late last week, is the latest recipient of the Town Carolina Charitable Giving Award.

From Town Carolina:

Henry Horowitz has been contributing to arts and culture in Greenville and South Carolina since arriving here three decades ago this year.

He’s still involved in all of it, including, especially, the springtime arts festival that stands as his most rewarding philanthropic effort.

Still, [John Warner] says, “Artisphere is not about Henry, it’s a whole group of people, plus their staff. It’s a whole community effort.”

“Henry Horowitz demonstrates an excellent mix of vision and service that benefit the arts in South Carolina, beyond just his beloved Upstate. He is deserving of every accolade and award he is given. The South Carolina Arts Commission is grateful for his advocacy and work on behalf of arts and creativity. We congratulate him on this latest award,” SCAC Executive Director David T. Platts said.
