Maggie is headed to the Christmas Parade in Downtown Boykin to Raise Awareness of ArtFields !
On December 16th, the ArtFields cultural development board will assist local community leaders and business owners in their staging of the annual Boykin Christmas parade. Taking place from 2-6 p.m. along Highway 268, the 2012 Christmas parade will feature floats constructed and piloted by South Carolina residents, as well nationally-recognized artists, including Bill Davidson, Georgia-based landscape painter.
ArtFields, the largest arts festival in the history of the Southeast, will hold its inaugural run in April of 2013 in Lake City, SC, and will bring artists from twelve Southeastern states to the heart of the Pee Dee for a chance to win $100,000 in prize money. This event, open to the public and taking place over nine days within locally-owned businesses and galleries in the walkable center of Lake City, will allow regional artists the chance to display their works, build awareness of their art, and create art within a historic town in the midst of an economic revitalization. The revitalization efforts in Lake City stem from the dedication of Darla Moore, whose vision for a sustainable Pee Dee focuses on cultural, educational, and infrastructure improvement. As Ms. Moore stated, “ArtFields will become the flagship art event in the Southeast. We are creating an exciting new opportunity for artists to enter our one-of-a-kind art competition and take part in an incredibly fun, festive, and inspiring celebration.”
Come experience the holiday season in a charming South Carolina town and engage with the ArtFields team, as they share the ArtFields vision and planning process, and enjoy the sight of two communities working to develop the spirit of regional collaboration that will breathe new life into South Carolina’s economy and its local culture.
