There are 12 benches built by the Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity and painted by various local artists over the course of the past two years. The themed works of art were designed to reflect the artist’s vision and placed throughout the Cultural District. Gullah and heritage-themed subjects are a favorite for artist Lisa Gilyard-Rivers.
