South Arts names two from S.C. to Emerging Leaders of Color program
The Hub helped promote South Arts’ Emerging Leaders of Color opportunity once, twice, or three times, so it’s only right that we let you know how it all shook out. Two leaders from South Carolina were named to the cohort: Melanie Colclough of Sumter (executive director of Patriot Hall/Sumter County Cultural Center) and Jemimah Ekeh of Columbia (freelance designer + administrator with One Columbia for Arts & Culture). There is more about the program and see who was accepted from other states right here.
State’s arts community loses two beacons
- News trickled out last week that Deacon James Garfield Smalls (right), a 2018 recipient of the Jean Laney Harris Folk Heritage Award, passed away at his St. Helena Island home in mid October at 100.
- Last week, arts advocate and South Carolina Humanities board member Delores Logan passed away from a stroke. Her family posted an announcement here.
