Discovering Community through Traditional Arts, August 12, 2013 - July 25, 2014, 2nd Floor, South Gallery
Dedicated to the late George D. Terry, Diverse Voices explores deeply-rooted traditions that help create and maintain the cultural landscape of South Carolina and the surrounding region. McKissick's South Gallery will permanently display folklore and material culture from the Southeast, and each year the exhibit will focus on a specific theme or tradition. Year one of Diverse Voices offers a comprehensive presentation of objects from the museum's collection that represent the work of celebrated NEA National Heritage Fellows and Jean Laney Harris Folk Heritage Award recipients. This year's exhibit showcases the work of artists like Philip Simmons, Janie Hunter, Burlon Craig, Snuffy Jenkins, and Gale Mckinley.
