The Public Art Fund

The Community Foundation of the Lowcountry believes that not only do the arts provide a much needed social escape for many in our communities—they also help drive local economies and enrich educational landscapes. All of these reasons helped to solidify the decision to embark on the very ambitious goal of hosting the inaugural Public Art Exhibition on Hilton Head Island in 2011 and again in 2013 and 2015. Unfortunately due to damage from Hurricane Matthew, the 2017 exhibition was postponed to 2018. This year's exhibition will open on October 1, 2018 and run through January 31, 2019.

At this biennial event, community members and visitors enjoy the exhibition of large scale outdoor sculptures, juried in from a large national field, and placed around the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn. This free to the public exhibition is open to the during the museum’s hours of operation.The ultimate goal of each Exhibition if for the jury to select one piece for purchase and permanent placement on Hilton Head Island, growing its public art collection.
