From now through Valentine’s Day, art hearts will adorn the windows of 918 Port Republic Street, a building scheduled to come down later this year to make way for development.
Spearheading this romantic project is Danie Connolly – most recently known for bringing an array of whimsical Nutcrackers to downtown Beaufort for the holidays.
The project is part of a new YouTube reality show called The Art Posse, featuring producer/artist Connolly teaching art to a host of local
“characters,” none of whom have any experience or discernible talent.
“Not one iota,” laughs Connolly. “Think Welcome Back Kotter with a cast that can’t
draw. It’s going to be very funny!”
Art Posse Productions is owned by Connolly and Ginny Cassidy. They start filming their show in February.
Look for more on The Art Posse in future issues of Lowcountry Weekly. For now, we encourage you to take your Valentine for a romantic stroll through the “hearts” of downtown Beaufort.
