Annual Juried Art Show cancelled at the Pickens County Museum

PICKENS — The Juried Art Show has always been a keystone event at the Pickens County Museum of Art and History. Unfortunately, this year it was found that the historic building has suffered serious water damage.

Pickens County Council has continued its commitment and support for the Pickens County Museum with the allocation of $120,000 from accomodations tax funds to repair the damage.

Due to the pending repairs and upgrades to the museum, the Juried Art Show that was to be held in October is cancelled. The museum is unsure as to the areas that will be affected.

The probability of damaging or endangering an artist’s work would be greatly increased by the construction, officials said.
