USCB professors to exhibit art work
Studio Art professors at the University of South Carolina Beaufort will be exhibiting their work through October 14 at the USCB Center for the Arts on the Historic Beaufort Campus. The Studio Art degree program provides students with a focus in visual arts and in the history of art, within the context of the liberal arts. The program prepares graduates both for professional careers and graduate programs in fine arts. The combination of an intensive liberal arts background with studio arts proficiency skills and practical experience helps students investigate and integrate their knowledge and perspectives in today’s technologically changing world and gives them the background needed for a career in the arts. For more information see www.uscb.edu/art/index.html. The artwork of Jon Goebel will be on display on September 12.
Street music in Port Royal: Elise Witt
The Street Music on Paris Ave series welcomes Elise Witt on Saturday, Sept. 10, at 6 p.m. Georgia-based Elise Witt sings her global, local and original songs in a dozen languages, including sign language. Elise has been a cultural ambassador to South Africa, China, Italy, Nicaragua, and Switzerland, and she has crisscrossed the United States from New York’s Carnegie Hall to Minneapolis’ Gingko Coffeehouse to Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe to the Kennedy Center’s 25th Anniversary Celebration. During her performance in Port Royal, she will be joined by students from Lady’s Island Elementary School after spending class time together crafting a new anthem for their arts-infused school.
