The Multicultural Committee and the Arts Center are proud to announce the 2023 Heritage Tea Arts Competition!

Since 1987 the Heritage Tea Art Competition has offered the opportunity for students across Kershaw County to channel their creativity and engage with black history. This year students grades 3-8 were invited to explore a prominent African-American figure that is a leader in their field (Science, Entertainment, Business, Sports, etc.). Students then write a one-page paper and creatively illustrate the report (poster board, mobile, collage, etc.). Schools select two winners per grade, and then those projects are displayed at the Arts Center!

All these fantastic projects will be on display in the historic Douglas Reed House from Tuesday, February 27th to Tuesday, March 5th. The public is invited to enjoy the open house from 10:00am to 5:00pm each day.

March 3 at 3:00 there will be a “Legacy Tribute: Althea Truitt” event in Wood Auditorium. The student projects will be on display in the gallery. Dr. Truitt’s legacy of courageous conversation, faithfulness to Christian principles, and unwavering commitment to family and friends will be remembered. 

On Tuesday, March 5th the public is invited to attend the Heritage Tea Student Awards program in the Wood Auditorium in the Arts Center at 6:30pm. This event is free and open to the public.
