The South Carolina State Library is seeking artwork and literature depicting the historic October 2015 floods for a display commemorating the disaster. The library will accept submissions of prose, poetry, photographs and digital art from the general public for #SCStronger, a special library gallery. The display will honor those who responded to the flood event and examine the impact it had on the Midlands region.
Up to five works per person can be submitted until noon Oct. 24. The works will be selected for display by a committee of S.C. State Library staff.
Complete submission guidelines and instructions are available online.
For more information, contact Sean Gruber, 803.734.0462.
About the South Carolina State Library
The South Carolina State Library develops, supports, and sustains a thriving statewide community of learners committed to making South Carolina stronger. The Library serves the people of South Carolina by supporting state government and libraries to provide opportunities for learning in a changing environment. It is the primary administrator of federal and state support for the state’s libraries. In 1969, as the result of action by the General Assembly, the State Library Board was redesignated as the South Carolina State Library and assumed responsibility for public library development, library service for state institutions, service for the blind and physically handicapped, and library service to state government agencies. Headquartered in Columbia, S.C., the Library is funded by the state of South Carolina, by the federal government through the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and other sources.
