About the 2018 Public Art Exhibition

This year’s exhibition is sure to be the best yet.

Why? Because we’ve had an extra year to work on it! If you’ve been counting, you’ll know we’ve had an exhibition every other year since 2011.

So what happened to 2017’s exhibition? Hurricane Matthew put a damper on it. Even though Matthew made landfall here in October 2016, Coastal Discovery Museum – our venue – was still serving as a debris site months later. Compounding the concern that the grounds would not be revitalized in time for the October 2017 exhibition, many of our exhibition supporters were struggling with the financial burden of property repairs. The Public Art Advisory Committee made the difficult decision to postpone the exhibition for a year.

But we’re back! And this year, as in the past, you’ll find 20 breathtaking, unique and attention-grabbing sculptures. Nineteen of these will be placed “around the horn” on the nearly-mile long pathway that traverses Coastal Discovery Museum. But one piece has the distinct honor of being installed inside, at the Hilton Head Airport. Make sure not to miss it!

Most, if not all, of the pieces in this year’s exhibition are available for sale, with a portion of any proceeds used to fund future Public Art Exhibitions. Please contact the Community Foundation to get a price list or learn more by calling 843.681.9100.
