303 Associates continues to support the Arts in Beaufort by donating a building to USCB Visual Arts and Design.
Beaufort has an established reputation of supporting arts and artists. Recognized as a “100 Best Small Arts Towns in America,” and home to its own cultural district and many arts focused groups, Beaufort also benefits from University of South Carolina’s Arts program. 303 Associates is pleased to build on the community support of arts and higher education.
According to 303 Associates Principal Dick Stewart, “When USCB announced its 4-year Arts degree program in Beaufort, we joined with many others to support scholarship requests led by Former Mayor Billy Keyserling and Former Beaufort County Council Chair Colden Battey to jump start the arts degree program. When we were asked by USCB if we could help with a place for art students to gather, work, interact, and create, we were pleased to be able to respond by donating what is now the USCB Visual Art and Design Building at Harrington Street. Art and design are essential parts of our life and culture. As USCB grows its computer and cyber programs, there is a wonderful opportunity to add digital gaming design which combines computer science with art and design. We are honored to be a part of our community’s growth and enrichment. Please contact USCB development and ask how you can help support the resurgence of the Historic Beaufort Campus.”
The building, just across Calhoun Street from USCB parking, is one block from student housing and the soon to open USCB dining center.
