South Carolina's First State-Designated

CULTURAL DISTRICT

 

In 2015, The South Carolina Arts Commission named downtown Rock Hill as the first state-recognized cultural district in South Carolina.

 

A cultural district is an area that is easily identifiable to visitors and residents and serves as a center of cultural, artistic, and economic activity. It may contain galleries, live performance venues, theatres, artist studios, museums, arts centers, arts schools, and public art pieces. It may also contain businesses like restaurants, banks, and parks, whose primary purpose is not the arts, but that regularly make their spaces available to artists or create opportunities for the public to encounter the arts.
