S.C. Arts Commission News Room

SCAC In the News - Archive


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.
