The Beaufort Arts Council is hosting its annual Harlem Renaissance Rent Party from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Feb 9 at the TCL Auditorium.
The event is the organization’s premier annual fundraiser and supports a range of educational programming and community activities for artists and schools in Beaufort County.
“The Harlem Renaissance era has had a strong influence on the musical, artistic and literary arts around the world,” Beaufort Arts Council Chairman Jeff Shawd said in a release. “Celebrating this period is an excellent opportunity to highlight the mission of the organization, and to showcase the talents of visual artists, jazz musicians, singers, dancers, and literary artists around the county.”
This year’s event will feature live music from some of the region’s top jazz musicians and singers performing popular jazz standards through the decades, as well as dance performances, literary readings, a silent auction and a surprise that is sure to have everyone talking.
