Post-Event Media Coverage

Art lovers weren’t the only ones impressed by ArtFields. Local business owners, Lake City residents and visitors raved about the epic Southern artfest.

The Charleston City Paper came up during the first weekend and had a fantastic time.

Can art transform a town? The idea smacks of naïvete, but after spending a day at ArtFields in Lake City, S.C., on Saturday, I can’t help but wonder…The result of all those artists converging on Lake City was engrossing. My wife and I spent six-and-a-half hours touring the shops, museums, and restaurants of downtown Lake City, only to find out from other art fans at dinner that we had missed dozens of works along the way. If the festival gets any bigger next year, we’ll need to plan a two-day trip to see it all.

Then on Saturday, the Morning News wrote about the Art Competition winners:

You try to not get your expectations up too much, but when you are honored, it’s a little overwhelming when all those emotions are coming back. Art making is a lot of time alone, so to walk across that stage and have someone and a community appreciate your work is just tremendous. It’s a great honor to be here.

In addition, the Washington Examiner, Huffington Post, Washington Post, Houston Chronicle and numerous other outlets picked up the AP story, ArtFields: Rural SC Town Stages 10-Day Artfest.
