S.C. Arts Commission News Room

SCAC In the News


For more than 40 years, the South Carolina Arts Commission has worked to make it possible for every citizen in the state, including those who do not have a lot of money or live in a large city, to enjoy and benefit from the arts. The Commission's programs and activities fall into three major domains of public participation and service: Artist Development, Arts Education, and Community Development.
