As the first city in the United States to have a continuous supply of electric power, Anderson, South Carolina, has always been out front in setting the standard. The city’s embrace of public art as a necessary component of downtown is just another example of the city’s leadership. The South Carolina Heritage Corridor recently noted that “of all the communities along the Heritage Corridor, the City of Anderson embraces public art the best.” Through judicious use of resources and carefully cultivated partnerships, the City of Anderson sets a standard for public art in South Carolina.
Congratulations to Mayor Terence Roberts, his administration, and the Anderson Arts Center.
