Home to More Than 4,500 Works of Art
The art collection at the South Carolina State Museum is home to more than 4,500 pieces of art from traditional portraiture and decorative arts to contemporary work and more.
South Carolina art plays an integral role in the state’s culture and history, both in the past and today. In addition to featuring changing exhibitions on South Carolina art, the museum also features artwork throughout four floors of permanent gallery space, in our planetarium lobby and even outside on the museum grounds.
South Carolina Featured Artists
The museum's collection also features a limited number of pieces by living artists currently working in our state. Thanks to grant from the SC Arts Commission, the museum was able to work with local filmmakers and have videos produced with a few of these artists to talk about their work and experiences with the museum.
