May 12: Florence Regional Arts Alliance Awards Night

Please join the Florence Regional Arts Alliance as we celebrate community leaders who have made a difference this year. The 2015 Arts Awards will be presented in conjunction with an artist reception for the beautiful Legacy Exhibit housed in the Waters Gallery.

The event begins at 6pm and will take place in the Florence County Museum Waters Building.

There is no cost to attend the reception or to see the exhibit due to the generosity of First Reliance Bank, the UPS store, She Magazine and Diversity Works Magazine.
