ArtPop-KelleyLuikey-with-billboardThe Beaufort Arts Council will be hosting an ArtPop Reception to introduce the winners of this year’s inaugural ArtPop Program. Come celebrate this great work by local artists.  

Beaufort Arts Council, Adams Outdoor Advertising and ArtPop founder Wendy Hickey partnered to launch the local program in our area. They received 73 submissions from local artists, and ten were selected to have their work printed on area billboards in 2016. The first billboard went up last week, featuring “Cloudscape,” by Kelley Luikey (above).

This event is free and open to the public. The BAC and Mather Academy would like to extend an invitation to the public to join them on March 15th from 5:30-7:30pm at The Beaufort Inn’s Tabby Place, located at 913 Port Republic Street, Beaufort, SC 29902. Guests will enjoy food, music and the opportunity to meet local artists. In addition to the Artpop introduction, BAC and Mather Academy will be having a brief annual meeting and program. There will be many important and exciting announcements made! If people are interested in attending this event, please RSVP to the Beaufort Arts Council at with the headline “RSVP for (number of guests attending).”
