Hub E-Vents: July 23

You want art. You crave art.

#SCartists and arts organizations want to fill that void.

They live for that. It’s a calling.

Yet in times of social distancing, that’s hard to do. Through the wonders of modern technology, many are trying and succeeding. So while we’re all staying home to protect vulnerable family, friends, and neighbors,  The Hub is stepping up to fill the void between artists and arts lovers. (Learn more about Hub E-vents here.)
