The Elizabeth O'Neill Verner Awards

The City of Beaufort / USC Beaufort Center for the Arts

2017 Government Award


The City of Beaufort and the U.S.C. Beaufort Center for the Arts

The City of Beaufort, a state-designated Cultural District, has a long and successful history of supporting the arts. City leaders believe that cultural sustainability for residents, businesses and visitors is fundamental to a healthy and growing community. The USC-Beaufort Center for the Arts has been the heart of the City of Beaufort’s rich and diverse arts culture for 30 years, serving as both the sponsor and venue of all forms of arts. The City and the Center for the Arts partner to provide and promote opportunities for residents and visitors to benefit from the arts, including events such as the Beaufort Film Festival, the 2016 S.C. Humanities Festival, Pat Conroy at 70, (now the annual Pat Conroy Literary Festival), theatre productions, a chamber music series, multiple gallery exhibitions and more. This collaboration between government and a nonprofit organization has been a catalyst to make Beaufort a robust arts and cultural center.
