In the Upstate of South Carolina, the Artisphere arts festival is preparing for its 13th year of engaging, inspiring, and enriching the diverse community of Greenville.

The festival integrates the unique culture of the Upstate, bringing culinary, performing, and visual art to the epicenter of downtown Greenville.

Artisphere utilizes its community to achieve this integration, and this year the festival has partnered with numerous businesses and organizations. Clemson University is helping to host the STEAM Exhibition; Greenville-based Current Tools is sponsoring the Greenville County High School Juried Exhibit; the Greenville Health System is leading the Artists of the Upstate Juried Exhibition.

The weekend-long celebration includes full days of concerts. Not to be missed is the After Hours concert series, headlined this year by Louisiana Americana singer/songwriter Marc Broussard. Another main attraction is GE Artist Row, which features 135 artists selected by 5 jurors, 41 of which are first-time exhibitors to Artisphere.
