In the heart of South Carolina is the rural Pee Dee region where life primarily revolves around agriculture and manufacturing. But a transformation is taking place that is capturing the attention of the art world across the Southeast.

Leading this charge is the town of Lake City, which is quickly becoming a center of art and culture by playing host to ArtFields. This festival began in 2013 as a way to honor the artists that are local to the Southeast with nine days of celebration and competition. This year the festival will take place from April 21-29 in downtown Lake City in a variety of event venues and spaces.

Twelve southeastern states represent the makeup of ArtFields with more than 400 works of art. And there’s over $120,000 awarded in artist competitions to attract some of the top artists in
the region.

Throughout the nine days, the festival will feature a myriad of events including ArtFields Jr. Educational Artwalks, Color-Me ArtFields 5k, a plein air day at Moore Farms Botanical Garden, and many more exhibitions and educational opportunities alike to become immersed in the local culture of southern art.
